Space: weather or not

Space: weather or not

Concerning the quest to predict space weather more accurately

Getting started

I have just started a new project

Hello, dear reader, and welcome to my blog. I will attempt in this blog, to try to adopt the levity of the blog of Scott Aaronson (available at, one of my previous professors, who famously stated the words:

“If P = NP, then the world would be a profoundly different place than we usually assume it to be. There would be no special value in “creative leaps,” no fundamental gap between solving a problem and recognizing the solution once it’s found. Everyone who could appreciate a symphony would be Mozart; everyone who could follow a step-by-step argument would be Gauss; everyone who could recognize a good investment strategy would be Warren Buffett.”

So, you get the picture of the sort of blog this will be: both serious, and at the same time trying to relate to the layman. I will be lucky, however, if I am as successful as Aaronson in presenting this.

I also attach a picture on every blog post; this first one is a picture of the Aurora Australis, which I found on Wikipedia. I suppose it is Space- Weather-ish. My research has not yet begun, and I am excited to get started. I hope that there are bright skies ahead. My featured image is open source! don’t worry about copyright. It is an image of space weather forecasters Yihua Zheng and Antti Pulkkinen. Hopefully I will be able to update this blog soon!
