Sun-Earth Connection – 6/27 public program at AMNH

Life on Earth is made possible by its proximity to the Sun. Yet even with the protection of our magnetic field, we face a daily barrage of radiation — the solar wind — which flows outward from the Sun. Should we worry about this “space weather?” NASA heliophysics Masha Kuznetsova and Leila Mays from NASA Goddard’s Community Coordinated Modeling Center will join Carter Emmart for an immersive look at this beautiful (and potentially dangerous) phenomenon.

Join tomorrow evening (Tuesday 27 June, 2017) at 7:00pm EST, as Masha and Leila present research about the Sun-Earth connection in the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium using the OpenSpace software.
