The largest solar flare in five years is set to hit the earth Thursday morning, as charged particles bombard the planet at nearly 4 million miles per hour.
The massive solar storm could pose a threat to electronic devices, electrical power grids, and NASA’s space station.
An excerpt from the New York Times reads;
The storm started with a massive solar flare earlier in the week and grew as it raced outward from the sun, expanding like a giant soap bubble, scientists said. When it strikes, the particles will be moving at 4 million mph.
“It’s hitting us right in the nose,” said Joe Kunches, a scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colo.
The massive cloud of charged particles could disrupt utility grids, airline flights, satellite networks and GPS services, especially in northern areas. But the same blast could also paint colorful auroras farther from the poles than normal.
Astronomers say the sun has been relatively quiet for some time. And this storm, while strong, may seem fiercer because Earth has been lulled by several years of weak solar activity.
The storm is part of the sun’s normal 11-year cycle, which is supposed to reach peak storminess next year. Solar storms don’t harm people, but they do disrupt technology. And during the last peak around 2002, experts learned that GPS was vulnerable to solar outbursts.
This comes as no surprise to The Intellihub, as we have received reports from employee’s within the nuclear power industry stating that nuclear workers were indeed called to meetings in 2011 regarding this issue.
In the meetings the employee’s were briefed on the possibilities of civil unrest and martial law due to power grid failure. This issue has also been covered on an episode of Jesse Ventura’s Conspiracy Theory Show which aired on Tru TV.
According to NASA scientists, there will be a series of unusual solar flare activities in 2012 that will be much more severe than ones in recent times.
These events could lead to a disastrous scenario, a cascade of catastrophe. Unfortunately, the government has made little to no preparation for the populace as they seek to retreat into underground bases which have been readied for the elite only.
In 2008 NASA reported a massive breach in the earth’s magnetosphere, In Star Trek terminology “The Shields are down Scotty”.
The earth is now primed and ready to receive billion ton proton blasts from the sun, front and center, as a possible Thursday morning solar storm threatens civilization.
