Weather forecasting has expanded to space weather. As of 1 March 2012, satellite operators and the general public will be able to obtain forecasts of the Earth’s radiation belts, thanks to the SPACECAST project. The opening of the first European system to forecast Earth’s radiation belts, part of the SPACECAST project, is funded by the European Union Framework 7 Programme and provides a forecast of high-energy electrons up to 3 hours in advance (updated every hour), as well as a risk index for the satellite operations and service industry.
