Sample text

How much danger is there to satellites in Earth orbit? Geostationary satellites are by far the most exposed – they’re orbiting in the outer parts of Earth’s magnetic field and get almost no protection, so they have to endure a lot of solar radiation. The key is good design – on computer chips for instance, a lot of the challenge is about very careful layout of the circuit, and maybe not putting quite so much on the chip as a whole. If you’re drawing all these tiny electrical circuits what you don’t want is a situation where a radiation hit could cause a short circuit.

For instance, aircraft are already very robust to such issues, and even cars are designed with this in mind – you can hardly warn people not to drive their cars today because there might be a solar radiation storm. What about the risk of another Québec-style incident? Well that’s a very different effect, and that comes from the geomagnetic storms. Part of what they do is The Solar Max satellite, in operation from 1980 to 1989, was one of the first spacecraft to closely study solar cycles disrupt the natural electric currents that flow around the planet.

Venera-4 sent back information about Venus’s atmosphere and atmospheric pressure the following year, and actually did land on the surface. It didn’t last long under the pressure, though. NASA sent another probe to fly by, Mariner 5, in 1967, which measured the strength of Venus's magnetic field. The Soviet spacecraft Venera-5 and Venera-6 attempted The Pioneer programme was designed specifically to study Venus landings in 1969, but were once again crushed by the pressure on the surface. In 1970, Venera-7 also made a landing and stayed in contact with the Earth for around 30 minutes.
