How does space weather impact us here on Earth?
Space weather, oh yeah, there’s weather in space! The sun is usually the source: Solar flares and coronal mass ejections are two examples. Oh, and you’ve probably heard of the Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis, which yours truly was able to witness.
But, I’m getting a head of myself. That’s toward the end of my interview with Bob Clauer. He’s a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Virginia Tech and part of a team working to improve space weather forecasts. Clauer explains why space weather forecasts are so important and how he’s hoping to improve them in this Weather or Not - a science podcast.
Dig on the fab ladies who perform? This issue is full of them! Our end-of-summer issue has got some pretty funny ladies (dressed in vintage, of course!), movie-inspired recipes, profiles on the spaces and makers of the performance world and a ton of fashion!

This New Orleans rat is helping researchers lay the groundwork for a potentially powerful tool in disaster relief: a mathematical model that could simulate how environmental changes, natural or man-made, affect populations of rodents that carry pathogens hazardous to human health.
