How humans can influence space weather
Climate change has shown us just how much human activity can impact our planet, but did you know that we can also affect conditions in space too? Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA Goddard and features a look at how humans can influence space weather.
It turns out that Cold War-era nuclear tests set off an unexpected chain reaction that affected the skies and power girds across the globe, reaching as far as our own satellites in space.
The more we learn about how humans impact the planet and beyond, the better equipped we become to protect ourselves.
