About the book
The solar wind has a large impact on our solar system and on its human activities, whether on earth or in space.
This book looks into the solar wind generator, its monitoring, forecast, modeling, and capacity for disruptions. It also develops on its transport, its shape through the vacuum of space, and its interactions with the Earth’s magnetosphere or other planetary magnetosphere types. Additionally, fields of observations, understanding, its variations of volumes and charges have a primordial impact on Life, whether on Earth or in space.
Life support design in space is particularly restricted by radiations and solar winds. The shielding of electronics in space and on Earth (whether on the surface or in atmospheric vehicles) needs to be taken into account according to operational resilience required by the strategic level of the mission.
Communication is hampered by the solar wind - this is an important operational requirement as electronics are the basis of a large part of our human activities. Adaptation of our communication systems, resilience strategies, redundancy of most critical systems, parallel systems for crisis and emergency situations, post-EMP communications are all potential subjects revolving around our capacity to keep communications alive in face of various levels of disruptions or damage.
