Earth’s Magnetosphere

Earth’s magnetic field generates a sort of “magnetic bubble” in space around our planet. This region is called the magnetosphere. Earth’s magnetosphere is a bit like a magnetic force field that surrounds our planet. The magnetosphere protects our planet from some types of radiation from the Sun.
