At an altitude of approximately 80 kilometers, some of the electrically neutral atoms and molecules of Earth’s thin upper atmosphere are ionized by the Sun’s ultraviolet and x-ray radiation, creating the is not really a separate layer of the atmosphere, but rather a population of electrons and ions that are mixed in with the neutral gas of the thermosphere. Most students of physics will have covered these areas in the first year or two of their university courses. But, like most specialities, upper atmosphere and space science have their own peculiar slant. We have to deal with a gas, and in particular with an electrified : John Keith Hargreaves.
