Summary
"Storms from the Sun explores the emerging science of space weather and traces its increasing impact on a society that has become dependent on space-based technologies. Authors Carlowicz and Lopez explain what space weather really means to us down here - and what it may mean for future exploration and colonization of distant worlds. By translating the latest findings of NASA researchers and other top scientists into an account of scientific discovery, we are privy to some of the most closely held secrets that the solar-terrestrial system has to offer."--Jacket
