Solar storms are back, threatening life
SUN Solar Storm: More bad news does not deserve our planet earth. A global epidemic that continues to kill scores every day for the ongoing threat of climate change – we have plenty on our plates. And now there’s more – the sun has risen!
Just a few days ago, millions of tons of super-hot gas came out of the surface of the sun and spread to Earth. Officially known as a “coronal mass ejection,” the event was not strong enough to cause severe damage to the planet.
But over the years it has been the strongest geomagnetic storm on our planet. Many people have not even felt it. However, scientists believe that this indicates a worrying trend in the future – that the sun is rising and moving after many years of dormancy.
These emissions are not harmful to anyone on Earth’s surface, but there is a serious risk of damaging power grids, limiting radio communications, and exposing toxic radiation to airline workers and passengers. The worst is probably the ability of waves to take satellites from the grid.
In 2020 Sun started the new 11-year cycle which is expected to be basically final by 2025 Sen, solar storms and impacts are expected to become more common next year.
The last time such a solar storm hit our planet was 17 years ago. Over the past two decades, our reliance on technology has multiplied. And scientists fear that the continued rise of solar storms could potentially disrupt technology around the world.
SUN Solar Storm: What are the possible effects?
Space weather conditions are generally not taken seriously by stakeholders, analysts fear. If severe solar storms and other adverse space weather events affect Earth in the near future, could cause multiple losses.
The dangers posed by climate change are unimaginable. Terrible situations like natural disasters such as those seen during Hurricane Irma could jam the communication system. That’s not it! Solar storms can cause GPS to drop.
Solar storms are caused by changes in the polarity of the magnetic field of the energy source that is the 11-year solar cycle.
