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.
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.
Astrophysicists found out after the January 2014 solar flare that their predictions of solar weather were not very accurate. Here's the fix (kind of).
