             abstract = "The study of the interaction between solid objects and 
                         magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) fluids is of great importance in physics 
                         as a consequence of the significant phenomena generated, such as 
                         planets interacting with stellar wind produced by their host 
                         stars. There are several computational tools created to simulate 
                         hydrodynamic and MHD fluids, such as the FLASH code. In this code, 
                         there is a feature which permits the placement of rigid bodies in 
                         the domain to be simulated. However, it is available and tested 
                         for pure hydrodynamic cases only. Our aim here is to adapt the 
                         existing resources of FLASH to enable the placement of a rigid 
                         body in MHD scenarios and, with such a scheme, to produce the 
                         simulation of a non-magnetized planet interacting with the stellar 
                         wind produced by a sun-like star. Besides, we consider that the 
                         planet has no significant atmosphere. We focus our analysis on the 
                         patterns of the density, magnetic field, and velocity around the 
                         planet, as well as the influence of viscosity on such patterns. At 
                         last, an improved methodological approach is available to other 
                         interested users.",
