Abstract : Some of the physical characteristics of the Sun which relate to the production of hazardous radiations are presented and discussed from the viewpoint of man in space. Phenomena which pertain to the possible prediction of intense solar flares are also discussed and a sample flare forecast was made. Daily maps of the sunspot magnetic fields are needed to do this properly. Other topics include solar X-rays, sunspot-flare relationships, the solar cycle, the solar wind, the interplanetary magnetic field, flare classification, Russian observations, beam widths of plasmas, and radio noise generation.
