The announcement will be made at a solar physics conference in New Mexico, according to an alert released today (June 10) by the American Astronomical Society. The discussion will begin at 1 p.m. EDT (1700 GMT).
I’m not sure what this is, but it may be related to the previous announcement about the collaboration with the Met Office on Space Weather Forecasting for protecting the electric grid.
It is also possible that it is related to Livingston and Penn’s findings or related to the sunspot forecasts that have been constantly changing.
However, given the state of science promotion these days, I’m going with sensationalism, maybe something to justify the new US-UK joint venture.
