Website Of the Week Award
©2002 by Richard Nolle
MAR 25, 2002 - Space Environment Center is 21st Century Ptolemy; which is to say it keeps you posted on the latest interactions between the Above and the Below, the Cosmos and the Earth. If that sounds a little abstract, consider that this is the website of the national as well as world center for monitoring and forecasting disturbances that affect people in the space environment. Hint: you are in the space environment. From solar flares to other geophysical phenomena that change your weather and screw with your cell phone, space is all around you and altering your experience from one moment to the next. This site is where you get the straight dope in near real time, from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the US Air Force.
Technical note: Web Site Garage rates Space Environment Center fair over-all, poor in load time (23.03 seconds on a 56k modem). In comparison, the page you're now reading rates excellent in both categories (5.93 seconds to load at 56k).
