Space Physics, or Heliophysics, is the study of the medium between the Sun and the planets in our solar system, and the medium between stars and their planets. The space between stars and their planets is filled with a continuous flow of plasma, also called ''Solar/Stellar wind, and this outflow can impact the top of the atmosphere of planets on a short- and long range. Moreover, the interaction can be affected if the planet has an internal magnetic field. In my talk, I will review the modeling approach of solar and stellar wind. I will also discuss how the solar/stellar wind interacts with the planetary/exoplanetary atmosphere.
