Abstract: AbstractWe live on a very special planet in a very special solar system. Our planet has a benign climate. Our star has several habitable planets and is not so active as to inhibit the exploration and future colonization of these planets. In this short paper we review how the solar wind interacts with the planets, what factors matter in this interaction, and how active is our star.
