The affect of the space weather


Recommended Posts

Does space weather affect the space crafts` launches and do scientists check it before space crafts go to space?
I know there is such a fact like space turbulence and it can influence a space craft, but can space weather?

    According to the information I have found, I'd guess that something like a period with a strong solar storm would seem to be a poor choice for a launch window since it affects if not the craft, at least the ability to track/communicate with the craft

    Yes, it affects the electromgnetic field by the slghtset bit I believe, another thing is that Astronauts hav to be really carefull because the sun's rays are muchmore powerfull out in Space and they should only really beoutside of the spacecraft for a few hours every day.

    Also, I found out how space weather is forecasted ( that really surprised me )
    Space Weather is forecast with a combination of:
    - Theoretical/computer modeling (eg of the Sun's 11 year sunspot cycle)
    - Ground-based observations
    - Satellite based observations
