Talking risk in Wrexham

3 July 2014

It was a cloudy, wet day in Wrexham as we kicked off the discussion in the last of our three locations, but luckily the weather didn’t dampen the conversation. There was a great atmosphere and lots of interesting questions raised from participants as they explored the potential impacts and risks of space weather. Specialists from Lancaster University, the European Space Agency, Lloyds of London and the Cabinet Office provided insight into the mysterious world of studying space weather, managing risk levels and even how to insure a satellite.

It was particularly fascinating to hear the perspective of people who live in rural communities. It seems that many people in rural north Wales are already well prepared for extreme events, having experienced power cuts frequently. Many were confident that their homework would be easy to complete!
