The universe consists of a variety of astrophysical objects which are primarily composed of the fourth state of matter, plasmas. The plasma nature of the systems leads to a rich variety of phenomena such as flares, jets, shocks, novae etc. In particular, magnetic fields play an important role in such plasma phenomena. In this talk, I will show how the universe viewed via the plasma and/or magnetic lens contributes to a more comprehensive understanding of astrophysics.
