Space weather is one of the biggest threats to modern society as we know it, and encompasses a broad range of dynamic systems throughout the Solar System and the space surrounding Earth. I will talk about what space weather is, it’s journey from the Sun’s core all the way to near-Earth space, and how it can produce spectacular phenomena such as the Aurora Borealis, as well as being one of the greatest threats to our global infrastructure. I will also describe how we, as scientists, are going about trying to understand space weather and trying to produce forecasts in a similar way to how we might forecast weather on Earth
