Title: Escape Velocity Space News – EVSN – Solar Cycle to the Maximum, 2025
This episode was originally released in video format on December 13, 2023.
Researchers currently think solar maximum – when the Sun is most active – will occur sometime in late 2024 to early 2025. With this cycle, we will experience just what a good blast of solar radiation can do to the small sats, CanSats, and other satellites in low-earth orbit. If history is to be listened to, it’s only a matter of time before a solar event wreaks havoc on satellites and our ground-based society.
Bio: Dr. Pamela Gay is a Senior Scientist at Planetary Science Institute and a Director of CosmoQuest.
