Colloquium by Robertus Erdelyi (The University of Sheffield)

Living with a Star


In this talk, we will introduce the exciting and fascinating world of plasma-astrophysics with particular applications to the solar atmosphere and its near-Earth environment: Space Weather. We will demonstrate why the Sun, being the most proxy space plasma laboratory, is so key in this technology-driven world. We will also address one of the most frightening phenomena that can threaten human civilisation and life in the Solar System: massive energetic storms determining Space Weather. Finally, I will address how the Sun can contribute to solving another great challenge facing the humanity: our endless appetite for clean and green energy.
