A space weather site offers this tutorial about the state of matter called plasma. Animations, two games, and numerous enlargeable graphics are included in the tutorial. It presents information about what plasma is and where it is naturally found. The tutorial explains that understanding plasma and how it interacts with electric and magnetic fields is central to understanding much about our universe. In addition, one section of the tutorial discusses experimental fusion reactors in which man-made plasmas are used on earth. Plasma is the main type of matter in the universe, but it rarely occurs naturally on Earth because of the world's relatively cool temperatures. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
