Weathering Solar Storms

Dr Jim Wild looks at the science behind space weather and considers some of the implications of living with a star.


Space isn’t quite as cold and empty as you might first think. The Earth is embedded within the outer atmosphere of the Sun and is constantly buffeted by the solar wind and bathed in the remnants of the Sun’s massive magnetic field. While generally imperceptible to humans here on Earth, changes in the space environment, so-called “Space Weather”, can have an impact upon man-made technologies under, on and above the surface of the Earth. Dr Jim Wild looks at the science behind space weather and considers some of the implications of living with a star.
