Plasma

Plasma is an electrically neutral, ionized fluid (usually gas, but sometimes mixed with dust grains) composed of ions, electrons, and neutral particles. It is a type of matter distinct from solids, liquids, and fully neutral gases. The solar wind and the plasma in the Earth’s magnetosphere are fully ionized plasmas. The Sun’s photosphere and Earth’s ionosphere are partially ionized plasmas.
