Does the Sun spread hard radiation waves around the Solar System? If so, why are we safe here (or are we even safe)?
The Sun outputs several different kinds of things.
The Sun is (partially) a black-body radiator at a temperature of near 6000 K, and therefore emits all sorts of electromagnetic energy, including UV and X rays.
UV is stopped in the upper atmosphere. X rays are absorbed by the whole atmosphere, and are pretty weak anyway.
The Sun's EM activity in terms of harsh radiation increases greatly if there's a solar flare blowing up. Even then, we're pretty safe on Earth.
High energy particles
The solar wind is basically a flux of particles (nuclei of hydrogen, etc) shooting out of the Sun at pretty high energies. These are charged particles. When approaching the Earth, the Earth's magnetic field for the most part deflects them. If you're on Earth, you're safe. Even in space, the flux is not very great; you'd be safe inside a spacecraft.
However, during a solar flare, the flux of particles increases greatly. The Earth is safe, but an astronaut en route to Mars would be in a pretty unsafe situation.
The Van Allen radiation belt, which is outside of the Earth's magnetic field is believed to get its radiation from solar wind.
The sun sends out solar radiation, which is strong enough to be dangerous to living things. Much of it, however, is prevented from reaching us due to the Earth's electromagnetic field, which surrounds the Earth. This sphere originates at the poles (flowing out of the negative pole and into the positive pole) much like one on a standard magnet. The grade results in it being more near the surface at the poles, which is why we can see aurora in the more northern and southern parts of the Earth. The aurora is generated by a reaction between solar particles as they travel along the electromagnetic field.
