New information to share to students and co-educators about the truth of storms being universal and not only confined in the earth.

This web seminar helped update my understanding of how solar storms affect not only the Earth, but also communication satellites. The interactives and graphics include recommended for student use were amazing and very visually striking. Age appropriate lesson plans were given for all grades.

I attended this web seminar on New NASA Views of Storms in Space. Great information about space weather topics presented by and discussed with Dr. Eric Christian. We explored why it is good thing our sun is just ordinary and how magnetism is the cause of solar variability. The information and websites shared on current and future solar science was fascinating. Did you know that The Solar Dynamics Observatory ( SDO) is the High Definition TV of Solar Astronomy ? This web seminar is worth the time to review if you need up to date information about the Sun and Storms in Space . Worth sharing !
