Super Sun Blast Fears Put Russian Nuke Plants In Lockdown

The Federal Atomic Energy Agency (FAAE) states that “emergency notices” have gone out to all of Russia’s nuclear power plants warning them that a potential “blast” from our Sun could cause “massive power blackouts” and could even result in “spontaneous atomic explosions.” Prompting this unprecedented warning was our Sun’s unleashing of a massive X1.9 solar flare from the behemoth Sunspot … Continue reading

Risk Management & Space Weather: Are You Ready?

With modern society’s ubiquitous reliance on the electrical grid, “space weather”—such as a severe solar storm—can wreak havoc on the electric-power supply and trigger losses from business interruption and damaged physical assets. While power outages from space weather are low-frequency events, they have the potential to cause crippling long-term damage. In fact, the risk of … Continue reading

X – Ray Event Exceeded M5 From Sun Today

Sunspot 1283 has shot off an M-Class solar flare, which is directed at Earth. M-Class solar flares like this could cause a moderate effect on our radio and electrical grid systems but NOAA does not forecast a major geomagnetic storm with it. The flare was from a sunspot group crossing the central disk of the … Continue reading

Listening to the Sun May Improve Space Weather Forecasts

Sunspots, those dark regions on the surface of the sun whose high magnetic activity has ripple effects for Earthlings, seem to emerge and fade without warning. But now, by listening to the sounds the sun makes, scientists have managed to predict when a sunspot will appear up to two days beforehand. The findings, published in … Continue reading
