The magnetotail can influence space weather, causing auroras and sometimes affecting satellite operations and communications on Earth.

6. What is the significance of studying the magnetotail?

Studying the magnetotail helps scientists understand space weather and its potential impacts on technology and life on Earth.

7. How far does the magnetotail extend?

The magnetotail can extend millions of kilometers into space, far beyond the orbit of the Moon.
