Full Event Details:

The impact of major space weather events is an active area of research and a topic of national interest. The potential damage of a solar superstorm to our economy, communications network and electricity grid is a real threat and must be taken seriously. Such storms can cause the loss of GPS (with many more consequences than just not being able to find the way to the supermarket), alter the orbits of satellites and could cripple the electricity grids around the world. This session will present an overview of the causes of space weather and the potential repercussions of a superstorm.
