Space Weather Control

  1. Feb 18, 2005 #1
    I read a couple of years ago, where the "space weather", was going to be controlled for the protection of satellites. At the time, I was appalled at the audacity of that kind of move, when "Space Weather", is so poorly understood. Today I was reading about gamma rays created by the Earth linked to thunderstorm activity, and realized that "they" really don't understand "Space Weather". What do you think about this area of effort, by scientists?

    My metaphoric take on the very idea of controlling "Space Weather", was that what happens on the outer reaches of our atmosphere, constitutes a part of our relationship with the sun and that is also a mystery, really. We can detail our inventory of information regarding solar out put, but we really haven't undertaken the study of the huge systems of life that rely on all kinds of subtle energies and clues that come from the "expressions" of the upper atmosphere, and its relationship with the energies we generate/absorb/experience as a continuous relationship with our place in space/time.
