Sun Unleashes 6 ‘Rapid-Fire’ Solar Bursts in 18 Hours

“Between 7pm ET on September 18 and 1pm ET on September 19, six large solar plasma explosions were recorded by the SOHO satellite. One of these coronal mass ejections may create some geomagnetic fireworks viewable on Earth on September 21.” Source.

Solar Megastorm Could Cripple Satellites for a Decade – Earth-orbiting satellites are designed to withstand the sun’s explosions—but they may not be strong enough to ride out a solar ‘megastorm,’ a new study says. If hit by a powerful onslaught of solar energy and particles, Earth’s atmosphere would be flooded with high-energy electrons accelerated to nearly the speed of light, according to a new computer model. This would hinder operations of low-Earth orbiting, or LEO, satellites. The satellites wouldn’t immediately start falling out of the sky following a megastorm, but they would malfunction much faster than previous models suggested.” Read more.

Solar flare could unleash nuclear holocaust across planet Earth, forcing hundreds of nuclear power plants into total meltdowns – “Forget about the 2012 Mayan calendar, comet Elenin or the Rapture. The real threat to human civilization is far more mundane, and it’s right in front of our noses. If Fukushima has taught us anything, it’s that just one runaway meltdown of fissionable nuclear material can have wide-ranging and potentially devastating consequences for life on Earth. To date, Fukushima has already released 168 times the total radiation released from the Hiroshima nuclear bomb detonated in 1945 … What if a global tidal wave could destroy the power generating capacities of all the world’s power plants, all at once? Such a scenario is not merely possible, but factually inevitable. And the global tidal wave threatening all the nuclear power plants of the world isn’t made of water but solar emissions.” Read more.
