Solar Storms this week, are you ready?

The strongest solar storm in years hit Sunday (1/22), and will last until Wednesday (1/25). Strong solar storms such as this are known to cause massive blackouts, and increased levels of radiation. Make sure you're stocked up on the proper supplies.

PRLog - Jan. 24, 2012 - DESTIN, Fla. -- Few of us know what a Solar Storm is. Solar flares are caused by the sudden release of magnetic energy stored in the Sun's atmosphere. In an event called a "coronal mass" ejection (CME), bursts of charged particles are released into space (BBCnews.com). These radiated particles envelop the earth causing numerous issues with communications, electrical grids, and a chance of radiation exposure to astronauts.

What does this mean to you?

It's the plasma that causes much of the noticeable problems on Earth, such as electrical grid outages. In 1972, a geomagnetic storm provoked by a solar flare knocked out long-distance telephone communication across the US state of Illinois; In 1989, a solar storm caused a massive blackout in Quebec. It can also pull the northern lights further south (USAToday.com). The further north on the globe you reside, the more chance of communication failures, and large-scale blackouts.

NASA scientists agree that for the past several years the sun had been quiet, almost too quiet. Part of that was the normal calm part of the sun's 11-year cycle of activity. Last year, scientists started to speculate that the sun was going into an unusually quiet cycle that seems to happen maybe once a century or so. But recently that theory has changed. The big questions are, how frequently will we see solar storms such as this, and how badly could they affect us?
