Guest Presentation at Space Place
"Space Weather Forecasting"
Tuesday, August 14, 2018
UW Space Place, 2300 S. Park St. (lower level of the Atrium)
What really is space weather and why should we care about it? Dhanesh Krishnarao of the UW-Madison Astronomy Department will explain what causes space weather phenomena and why scientists (and politicians) all over the world should be concerned about its effects. We will also consider methods that allow us to be prepared and the various ways in which we are inherently safe here on Earth.
