The sun’s phenomena, like flares, can cause solar particles to enter the Earth’s atmosphere, with material effects.
Scientists spend years preparing for the two-minute window of a total solar eclipse.
The Lagrange mission could greatly improve forecasts of space weather.
When dozens of US mines planted in waters off the Vietnam coast detonated almost simultaneously in 1972, all eyes turned to the Sun for an explanation.
The Earth's magnetic field lines whistle after solar outbursts.
The wired Earth of the 21st century is at the mercy of the volatile nature of the sun.
No matter how cold it is, you're lucky you don't live on Venus.
At a time in the sun's cycle when space weather experts expect less solar activity, our star is going bonkers with solar flares and coronal mass ejections. What effects will Earth feel?
Space weather can impact life on Earth.
The Parker probe will go closer to the sun than any other spacecraft has dared go before – literally touching it.
Scientists still don't know what caused the mysterious phenomenon 'Steve'.
A geomagnetic reversal may have a severe impact on humans.
Ruby and sapphire clouds may be hovering over exoplanet HAT-P-7b.
Our growing dependency on satellites for all forms of communication has made the problem of space weather even more acute.
In the search for life on other planets in the universe we need to find the right kind of star, and it needs to have the right kind of space weather.
Researchers have found out how to predict solar flares up to ten times faster than previous methods.
Geomagnetic storms can interact with particles near Earth, causing issues for satellites and other tech. Researchers send balloons 20 miles into the sky to figure out just what's going on up there.
Our power grid infrastructure on Earth is more vulnerable to space weather than previously thought – with susceptibility in more regions and even during quiet geomagnetic periods.
A rare but dramatic solar storm could have a damaging effect on aircraft systems crucial for safe flight. New technology can help us avoid serious consequences.
Satellites are vital and vulnerable - we need to plan for a worst case scenario.
