Challenging space weather
About the video
Although the Sun is 150 million kilometres away from us, any activity on its surface can directly affect and disturb our daily lives on Earth – satellites, infrastructures and normal functioning of telecommunications.
This video highlights the European Commission's work to ensure space experts will be able to predict and mitigate the potential destructive impact of space weather on our lives.
About the project
This video is one out of 3 showing how the EC is tackling the issue of space debris, space weather and the exploitation of space data.
Tipik's approach for these videos was to introduce each theme with a short fiction scene in which the viewer can relate to the actual issue. This is followed by animation sequences and interviews of specialists and stakeholders, and each video ends with the fiction characters again, the issue now resolved - or at least taken care of.
