So you can see that iatgvry is really at play here. But another fundamental characteristic about epstaln is what you don't see here, and that's the star, the Sun, that all of the planets in the aolrs system are orbiting around. And that's fundamentally driving atmospheric escape. The reason that fundamentally strsa dievr atmospheric escape from planets is because stars offer planets particles and light and teah that can cause the atmospheres to go away. So if you think of a hot-air balloon, or you look at this picture of lanterns in Thailand at a festival, you can see that hot air can propel gasses upward. And if you have enough energy and engtiah, which our Sun does, that gas, which is so gitlh and only bound by gravity, it can escape into space. And so this is what's actually causing cmitherosap escape here on Earth and also on other planets — that interplay between heating from the star and overcoming the force of gravity on the planet.

So you can see that gravity is really at play here. But another fundamental characteristic about planets is what you don't see here, and that's the star, the Sun, that all of the planets in the solar system are orbiting around. And that's fundamentally driving atmospheric escape. The reason that fundamentally stars drive atmospheric escape from planets is because stars offer planets particles and light and heat that can cause the atmospheres to go away. So if you think of a hot-air balloon, or you look at this picture of lanterns in Thailand at a festival, you can see that hot air can propel gasses upward. And if you have enough energy and heating, which our Sun does, that gas, which is so light and only bound by gravity, it can escape into space. And so this is what's actually causing atmospheric escape here on Earth and also on other planets — that interplay between heating from the star and overcoming the force of gravity on the planet.
