Human beings have entered the space era since the former Soviet Union launched the first artificial satellite in 1957, and then can in situ measure physical quantities in the space. The heliosphere is consisted mostly of plasmas, the physical processes in the space play a critical role in the evolution of the space weather. In order to reveal the physical laws governing disastrous space weather events, we should carry out in-depth study on the physical processes in space plasmas, such as magnetic reconnection, collisionless shock and wave-particle interactions. This talk will review the recent progresses on these physical processes, and the generation of energetic particles in space plasmas, and also point out the unsolved problems.
