Why should we care about space weather?

We are delighted whenever we have the chance to gaze up at the aurora borealis — also known as the Northern Lights — dancing across the night sky. But we don’t always think about how phenomena like the aurora and space weather profoundly impact us.

In this webinar, UCalgary scholars Eric Donovan and Emma Spanswick help us understand space weather and the effects it can have on our technology, our natural systems and our climate.
