Today it is taken for granted that the solar outbursts are produced by plasma oscillations of coronal matter, excited by a corpuscular radiation originating in the inner corona (Pawsey and Smerd, 1953) [1]. A certain component of this corpuscular radiation is obviously identical with that generating geomagnetic storms.
