The hazards of space weather

Professor Craig Rodger is an expert on space weather and the impact that it can have on our lives here on earth.


He is Head of Physics at the University of Otago and his research looks into what could happen if a solar storm disrupts human technology.


His lectures are described as “unforgettable” by his colleagues with his high energy, dynamic lectures – putting complicated physics concepts into exciting language like zombie satellites and killer electrons.


Professor Rodger told Kathryn “space weather needs to be added to the list of hazards we think about as a country”.
