Science Cafe: Solar Storms
(06:00 PM - 08:00 PM)

Solar storms, flares and eruptions, collectively known as space weather, create dazzling visuals in space. However, it isn't just a harmless fireworks show for the galaxy. Each burst of energy can have a disrupting effect on systems we rely on every day, including satellites, radio blackouts, and rerouting airline flights. UNH astrophysicists Harlan Spence and Antoinette Galvin will share their expertise.


Spence is director of UNH’s Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space and professor in the physics department. His research interests include theoretical and experimental space plasma physics; cosmic rays and radiation belt processes; heliospheric, planetary, magnetospheric, lunar, and auroral physics.

 

Galvin is research professor in the department of physics at UNH. Her research interests include solar wind composition and solar energetic particles -- solar energetic particles that are a thousand times more energetic than the solar wind and are intermittently released from the sun during solar eruptions.

 

Hosted by UNH faculty member Cameron Wake at the Portsmouth Brewery’s Jimmy LaPanza Lounge, the Portsmouth Science Café provides a unique opportunity for Seacoast residents to feed their minds with contemporary science in the relaxed atmosphere of a pub. The discussions, which are free and open to all, run from 6:00 PM -8:00 PM; doors open at 5:00 PM for food and drinks.
