Speakers: Professor Steve Milan

The space between the planets appears empty, but in fact is a-buzz with electrodynamic and plasma activity.  The auroras of the planets are the most visible manifestation of these processes, processes which shape our environment, impact ground- and space-based technology, and have possible repercussions for our climate.  This lecture will describe the sequence of events, from the Sun to the Earth and beyond, that produce the auroras, and what these auroras can tell us about our otherwise invisible cosmic neighbourhood.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
Organised by: IOP East Midlands Branch, in conjunction with the Leicester Physics Centre
