Solar storms can have fatal effects on life on earth. Not only can they cause major outages in electrical devices, but they can also paralyze entire electrical networks. Experts now warn of such a phenomenon.
Experts warn of a dangerous one solar storm, which is currently darting towards the ground. Scientists assume that solar winds caused by the solar flare could hit Earth’s orbit in the evening. Even power outages cannot be ruled out.
Solar storm warning on June 20, 2022: solar winds are rushing towards the earth
As is currently the case with the British “Star of the day“It reads, the solar wind is rushing towards Earth at an extremely high speed. Second”spaziootempo.com“The eruption will thunder from a hole in the sun at a speed of about one million miles per hour (1,609,344 km / h). Experts predict that solar winds will hit the planet’s magnetosphere, which means they will try to break through ours. atmosphere.
Serious consequences of solar storms: the authorities give the green light
Although the likelihood of the solar storm actually hitting the earth is classified as low, its consequences would be devastating. Solar storms are known to sometimes knock out satellites or cause power outages, depending on their severity. If the solar storm really hits us, our power grids are in danger of faltering due to the unstable nature of the wind.
The solar storm can also affect animals on Earth
Not only our technology and communication systems are affected by solar storms. Many animals are also sensitive to changes in the Earth’s magnetic field, so they can be disoriented by a solar storm. Animals such as birds that are guided by the Earth’s magnetic field to conduct their migrations could become disoriented and die.
So far, authorities have not issued an official solar storm warning. It can therefore be assumed that the probability that the solar storm will hit us is extremely small.
What is a solar storm anyway?
To explain: Our sun constantly emits radiation and charged particles into space. This constant flow of particles is called the solar wind. We speak of a solar flare when this flow is significantly stronger than usual for a short time and in a limited area. The radiation and particles that are produced during a solar flare move through space and can even hit the earth.
