As our technological civilization becomes more dependent of space technology, we become more vulnerable to changes in the space environment in which that technology functions. These environmental changes are known as "space weather". In this talk I will discuss what drives space weather and how it affects human activities both in space and on the Earth. I will also discuss recent efforts by the Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling to create physics-based numerical simulations of the magnetosphere to be used in forecasting space weather.
