Every few centuries the sun blasts the Earth with a huge amount of high-energy particles. If it were to happen today, it would wreak havoc on technology.
Space weather can affect satellites in a number of different ways, from frying electronics to increasing drag in the atmosphere.
The sun has entered a phase causing more chances to see the northern lights in the UK, an expert explains.
A strange patch of extremely strong magnetic field occurred over Jordan in 1000BC. Could we be about to face another one?
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.
