What is the Space Environment?
John Spacey, updated on May 17, 2016
The space environment is a term for conditions in space such as space weather, radiation, temperatures, gravity, geomagnetic fields, plasmas, space junk, stars, planets, moons, meteoroids, comets and the upper atmosphere of earth beyond the Karman line. The space environment is typically studied in order to design and operate spacecraft. It also has impact on Earth's environment. For example, Coronal Mass Ejections more commonly known as solar storms disrupt the Earth's magnetic field. Such events can cause large scale power outages on Earth.
