Skins, borders, protective layers and, what ever else you would like to call them, are natural barriers that separate an object from its surrounding environment. They occur everywhere across the universe from galaxies and solar systems to seashores and blood cells. They give an entity its integrity and are vital for the efficient management of systems. Without them we would not exist.

For a human settlement, the rule is the same. The borders of towns, tribes, families and countries are vital for the functioning and protection for all who reside within the different forms of human community. They are not created due to racism or xenophobia or any other arbitrary human interpretation.They are natural and necessary. Boundaries exist for a reason.

Heliosphere

2g.Heliosphere_Image_main_BoundariesLgThe sun sends out a constant flow of charged particles called the solar wind, which ultimately travels past all the planets to some three times the distance to Pluto before being impeded by the interstellar medium. This forms a giant bubble around the sun and its planets, known as the heliosphere. 

 

Earth’s Magnetosphere

Enveloping our planet and protecting us from the fury of the Sun is a giant bubble of magnetism called the magnetosphere. It deflects most of the solar material sweeping towards us from our star at 1 million miles per hour or more. Without the magnetosphere, the relentless action of these solar particles could strip the Earth of its protective layers, which shield us from the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation.
