      Using my work, I hope to be able to predict solar eruptions, eventually. If we could do that, we would be able to tell airplanes not to fly near the north or south poles of the earth at certain times. If there is a big solar storm, airplane pilots and stewards can be in danger of getting hit by radiation.
