ISWI Newsletter - Vol.6 No.004
06 January 2014
Dear ISWI Participant:
It seems there is a serious proposal to sweep away the electrons and
protons of the Van Allen belts to reduce damage to the electronics
of orbitting man-made satellites. This goes beyond space weather
forecasting; this is in the (surreal?) realm of space weather modification.
For more details, please see the attached pdf.
