Space weather. Beware of the Sun’s hot temper

How does our nearest star, the Sun, affect our planet? Can the Sun impart its temper to Earth, and what is it like for the Earth to be wrapped in its embrace?


Tatiana Podladchikova, an expert in solar physics and space weather, will explain where sunspots come from, why solar flares happen, where the solar wind goes, why huge clouds of solar plasma may be dangerous and what causes geomagnetic storms and Aurora Borealis. Solar physicists are still grappling with some intractable problems that they hope to solve in the 21st century.

Tatiana Podladchikova is a PhD in Technical Science and an assistant professor at the Skoltech Space Center (SSC). Tatiana is a winner of the International Alexander Chizhevsky Medal for Space Weather and Space Climate.
