Ever more frequently, we hear of a news story about a communications satellite which has been partially or completely disabled as a result of a solar flare from the sun. What would it mean to our communications satellites if we had a solar event equivalent to the 1989 solar storm, which plunged millions of people in Quebec into total darkness? Now that our economic and national security is increasingly tied to our space-based assets, what would a major solar event mean to our economic and national security? Please join the TechAmerica Space Enterprise Council and the George Marshall Institute for a December 4th forum "A Day Without Space- What Would a Major Space Weather Event Mean to America's Economic and National Security?
