Submission + - Space Weather Forecasted by South Pole Neutron Detectors (

sciencehabit writes: A team of researchers has found a way to forecast the intensity of solar storms by monitoring neutron sensors at the South Pole.
The approach could help give advanced warning to astronauts and sattelites, which would otherwise be irradiated and fried, respectively. Smaller versions of these sensors could one day be standard equipment on interplanetary spacecraft.
