2. Space Weather CD Rom now available
**********************************************************************

From: Frank Jansen

The world-wide first CD-ROM on space weather is now available!

The CD-ROM describes the space weather background (physics and astro-
physics), impacts, past and future activities and outreach activities
in German, English and French language. This interactive and science
museum edition was written by European scientist by means of inputs
from all over the world for the European Science and Technology Week.
The CD-ROM will help to raise public awareness and to educate people
on space weather. Moreover a traveling space weather exhibition
(13 panels), a space weather planetarium show ("Thunderstorms in space
weather") and a space weather poster (in English or German) are
available on request.
