Space Weather

Space weather is a branch of Physics concerned with analysing the solar wind and the near-Earth space environment.  The areas of main interest are the magnetosphere, ionosphere, and thermosphere. On 6th March 2017, Dr. James D. Borderick presented an interactive high-level overview of the near-space environment with a focus on magnetic reconnection, the solar wind, and the ionosphere. He also overviewed instrumentation used to monitor the solar wind both in-situ and on the ground.

The event was a huge success. Some great comments, feedback and questions showing high enthusiasm and engagement by the sixth form students.
