Flotilla of spacecraft planned to provide space weather forecasts

Post by Strawberry on Sat Feb 26, 2011 12:37 pm

A swarm of spacecraft could be sent into orbit around the sun to provide an early warning system for the huge solar explosions that can interfere with electronic equipment on Earth and even influence our planet's weather.

Space scientists from the UK are hoping to send up a flotilla of spacecraft to provide round-the-clock three dimensional images of the material thrown out by the sun towards the Earth.
