The affect of space weather

Recommended Posts

Does space weather affect the space crafts` launches and do scientists check it before space crafts go to space?
I know there is such a fact like space turbulence and it can influence a space craft, but can space weather?

Solar activity can certainly affect things.

I found that something like a period with a strong solar storm would seem to be a poor choice for a launch window since it affects if not the craft, at least the ability to track/communicate with the craft.

Space Weather is forecast with a combination of: Theoretical/computer modeling (eg of the Sun's 11 year sunspot cycle) Ground-based observations. Satellite based observations
