Whether there’s weather in space

Electrons in the Inner Van Allen Belt - Frontiers in Science

Electrons in the Inner Van Allen Belt - Frontiers in Science

Space is not a dark, cold void as many people think. Instead, it churns with energy—in the form of magnetic fields and electrically-charged particles. The sun hurls that energy toward the Earth in a “solar wind” that blows at over two million miles per hour. Intense solar storms can disrupt communications, compromise power grids, and even influence your day-to-day life on Earth.

Join Geoff Reeves, with the Lab’s Space Science & Applications group, as he talks about his research on just how space weather impacts our planet and the discoveries still to be made.
