About NASA Goddard Space Weather Research Center


OUR MISSION

“ Addressing the space weather needs of NASA's robotic missions through experimental research forecasts, notification, analysis, and education. Bringing space weather knowledge to the public. ”


Space Weather Research Center and NASA

Space Weather Research Center Brochure Here at the NASA Goddard Space Weather Research Center, we focus on providing critical space weather notification for NASA Robotic Missions. Since the needs of different NASA Robotic Missions are unique, we provide a broad range of tools, products, and services to meet the dynamic requirements of our customers.

Providing accurate real-time experimental research forecasting of both large-scale and local space environments - and their probable impacts for missions is an essential component, and we achieve this by providing routine experimental research forecasts, notification, space weather analysis, and spacecraft anomaly resolution support.

Effects of Space Weather

Technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in our society and the potential for space weather to impact our daily lives is also growing. The technological infrastructure, including the power grid and satellites used for communication and navigation, is vulnerable to space weather effects caused by the Sun's variability. Awareness of the issue is on the rise both nationally and globally.

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Space Weather Research Center has developed space weather products, capabilities, and services that not only target NASA's needs, but also addresses broader interests by leveraging latest scientific research results and state-of-the-art models hosted at the Community Coordinated Modeling Center.


NASA Data & Research

Data from NASA missions like SOHO, STEREO, and SDO provide our initial views of space weather activity from several vantage points. Monitoring the Sun is our first line of defense in determining the potential space weather impacts of solar activity. Data and research from missions like these are cornerstones of our space weather services.
