Space Weather and how it can work for you!

Hi, I’m Tamitha Mulligan Skov and I stare at the Sun a lot. I am a credentialed space weather forecaster and I have been helping the public understand the effects of Space Weather on our daily lives since 2013.  I work primarily in the fields of solar and space physics research and in the testing of spacecraft materials in realistic space radiation environments. https://www.spaceweatherwoman.com/
