Title: Space Weather and its Effects on Technologies
Revolutionary advances have occurred in electrical technologies over the last century and a half - from communications to navigation, to prospecting, and to the electrical grids spanning continents. Since the development of electrical telegraph in the 1840s space weather processes have affected the design, implementation, and operation of many of these engineered systems. As the complexity of such systems increase, including their interconnectedness and interoperability, they can become more susceptible to the effects of Earth's space environment - an environment driven by processes originating in the Sun.
