    Plasma are charged particles, neutrals and fields that exhibit collective effects. Further, plasmas carry electrical field and generate magnetic fields. Plasmas are the most common form of matter, comprising more than 99% of the visible universe, and permeate the solar system, interstellar and intergalactic environments.

    This is great, thanks for posting this. Its really funny, because I just logged on to ask for some intro plasma/MHD material and this post was already there.
