===== The True Power of the Solar Wind ===== ===== The True Power of the Solar Wind =====
-The solar wind, a steady stream of mainly protons and few multiply charged heavier ions from the sun, causes significant erosion upon impact on the surface of atmosphere-less planets like Mercury or on the moon. In a recent paper in [[https://doi.org/10.1016/j.icarus.2018.05.028|Icarus ]] we now show that previous models of this process are incomplete. The effects of solar wind bombardment are in some cases much more drastic than previously thought. The role of solar wind constituents heavier than protons and in particular the role of the particles charge state has so far been underestimated.
