It does not take weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing.

When I worked as a NASA Flight Director for the Gravity Probe B program, we had bad RAM in our onboard computer. We were only supposed to get SEUs, Single Event Upsets, basically corrupted bits, a few times a year. Because of the RAM, it happened sometimes many times per day. The main cause was solar activity, thus we had space weather reports and predictions every day.

 

There really is space weather!

Yes, I do believe so, though I've never experienced it directly. Good cartoon, and thanks, Nick. 


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.
