CANCELLED:Protecting Earth from the ravages of the Sun:CANCELLED

Speaker:

Dr Colin Forsyth, UCL

Abstract:

The Sun bathes the Earth in light and also in a stream of charged particles that fly through the solar system at over 1.8 million mph. As these particles reach the Earth, they collide with Earth’s protective magnetic field, getting captured and trapped in the space around us. Uncover how this stream of particles changes, modifies the particles trapped on the magnetic field and results in the aurora, the Van Allen belts, and find out what we are doing to understand and prevent space weather from impacting on our lives.
