Sentinels of the Sun: Forecasting Space Weather - used book

ISBN: 1555663796

ID: 6598707

Watched and worshipped for millennia by cultures around the world, the Sun has rightly been seen as the source of weather, heat, and light. For thousands of years, it has also been seen as sacred, mysterious, and powerful. Although we no longer worship the Sun, we study it for a different kind of survival. Space weather- phenomena caused by the Sun- can seriously affect the performance and reliability of space-borne and ground-based technological systems; it can also endanger human life and health. This book takes a look at space weather and the Space Environment Center, a federal agency devoted to the study of the Sun. The numerous players in the story have brought this science to the forefront of space physics and solar forecasting because they understand that Earth systems will be increasingly affected by the Sun. This exciting time in the scientific understanding of our Sun will affect each of us who talks on a cell phone, finds our way with a GPS receiver, flies to the top of the world or beyond, or simply sits out under th northern lights pondering such beautiful displays. astronomy,astronomy and astrophysics,astronomy and space science,astrophysics and space science,physics,science and math,science and math,textbooks Astronomy & Space Science, Johnson Books

The Halloween Storms of late 2003, one of the largest series of solar storms in history, caused power failures, the rerouting of airline flights, satellite and space-station problems, and the failure of multimillion-dollar instruments on the Mars Odyssey orbiter and the ADEOS-2 spacecraft. The dramatic activity underscored the limitations of our understanding of the Sun. With the tremendous technological advancements over the past hundred years, we are now forced to examine the workings of the Sun and its effect on our daily lives. This book takes a look at space weather and the Space Environment Center, a federal agency devoted to the study of the Sun.
