NASA to study secrets of space weather

US space agency will launch probes into orbit to help scientists predict patterns of solar storms.

    The US space agency NASA is set to launch a rocket carrying two probes to learn more about space weather.

    Unpredictable solar storms can cripple satellites and disrupt power grids that can knock out electricity here on earth.

    Scientists are eager to learn how to predict when these storms will occur.
