Geoff Reeves, a Los Alamos National Laboratory Fellow and scientist in the Space Science and Applications group, will discuss the science behind space weather during three Frontiers in Science lectures titled “Whether There’s Weather in Space” beginning July 24 in Santa Fe.
“Space is not a dark, cold void as many people think. Instead, it churns with energy in the form of magnetic fields and electrically-charged particles,” Reeves said. “Intense solar storms can disrupt communications, compromise power grids and even influence your day-to-day life on Earth.”
In his talk, Reeves will discuss his research on how space weather impacts our planet and the discoveries still to be made. Reeves talks about the perils of space weather in a recent video posted to the Laboratory's YouTube channel.
All Frontiers in Science presentations begin at 7 p.m. and are free of charge. The talks are:
- Monday, July 24 at the James A. Little Theater at the New Mexico School for the Deaf, 1060 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe
- Wednesday, July 26 at the Crossroads Bible Church, 97 East Road, Los Alamos
- Friday, July 28 at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, 1801 Mountain Road NW, Albuquerque
Sponsored by the Fellows of Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Frontiers in Science lecture series is intended to increase local public awareness of the diversity of science and engineering research at the Laboratory.
