Improving the Accuracy of Space Weather Forecasting
The innovative technologies Space Technology 5 (ST5) demonstrates will be infused into future micro-sat or nanosat missions, such as a constellation mission to study solar substorms. The data products (results) from ST5 could provide scientists with a better understanding of solar activity, which in turn could improve the accuracy of space weather forecasting. More accurate forecasting would help us to be better prepared for disruptions by space weather to our power, communication, and navigation systems. Image credit: NASA
