Scientists have pointed out that the conditions and events in the solar atmosphere like coronal mass ejections (CMEs) influence the space weather and can directly take part in the space weather prediction.
Its influence is crucial for the health and safety of the satellites and properly understanding this will help in compiling the of data from the upcoming Aditya-L1, India’s first solar mission.
The Space weather is a term used for conditions in the solar wind and near-Earth space.This weather can adversely affect the performance of the technologies in the space and ground-based technological systems.
It is also found out that the space weather near our planet is mainly due to CMEs. The CMEs are explosive expulsions of large amounts of magnetised plasma from the Sun into its surroundings. Those plasma can blow past the Earth.
Space weather events are geomagnetic storm which can last for few hours to few days. Therefore to understanding the events in the solar atmosphere and how they influence space weather is necessary our satellites.
