WHO'S AFRAID OF KILLER ELECTRONS?  "Killer electrons" from the Van Allen Belts are raining down on Earth's atmosphere. Last Saturday, students from UCLA launched a pair of satellites they built themselves to monitor this space weather threat. The two healthy cubesats are now orbiting Earth and beaming data to the ground, which ham radio operators around the world can easily receive. Visit today's edition of Spaceweather.com to hear the transmissions and learn more.

Browse to youtube and search for: solar storm  The threat is not trivial. The earlier we find out about it the less incompetently we can prepare.

"Killer electrons" are raining down from space. Students from UCLA have launched a pair of satellites they built themselves to track the threat.
