What is space weather and how can it affect Earth? Find out in the Royal Observatory Summer Lecture with Professor Chris Scott. 

Our Sun is a star that ejects vast eruptions of material into space which, if it comes towards Earth, can disrupt modern technologies such as satellites and ground-based power grids. 

This talk will investigate the origins of this 'space weather' and what happens when one of these 'solar storms' reaches Earth.
