    noaa space weather scale for solar radiation stormss3 strongbiological: radiation hazard avoidance recommended for astronauts on eva; passengers and crew in high-flying aircraft at high latitudes may be exposed to radiation risk.***satellite operations: single-event upsets, noise in imaging systems, and slight reduction of efficiency in solar panel are likely.other systems: degraded hf radio propagation through the polar regions and navigation position errors likely. http://www.sec.noaa.gov/noaascales/index.html#solarradiationstormshttp://www.spaceweather.com/

    yep. a total hf blackout at the pole during that time, probably mcmurdo too.one experiment i maintain (looks for radar echoes off meteoritesǃ) blacked out too because of ionospheric conditions. at first we thought it was a hardware problem… lesson learned.g

    hi glenn,hope your experiments are back to normal. i did not see much in the tv news about it. like most news i have to do a little looking and searching. i wonder if the north high latitudes had some good n. lightsʔit looks like it is over since nasa is letting the spacewalkers go out today.”meanwhile, sts-116 and expedition 14 crew members have transferred to the station spacesuits and tools that will be used during sts-116ʼs three spacewalks. the first excursion will take place at 3:42 p.m. tuesday. “http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/main/index.html
