In 2030, a solar storm could be a disaster for the world

We are now completely dependent on the electricity and satellite networks, so if we now encounter a solar storm like 1859, it will not simply be strange but a carpet. Real painting.

In 2012, the National Intelligence Council (NIC), an important part of the US government, was responsible for researching and predicting the future, and submitted a report. This report is called "Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds" , roughly translated as "Global Trend in 2030: The Next World".

In the report, NIC focuses on addressing issues that may pose a threat to society in the future. Among them, the scientists and intelligence workers believe that the most serious threat is the Sun storms."So far, the solar super typhoon has always been considered a major threat to the economic and social structure worldwide," the NIC declared.

Solar Storms occur when there is a big explosion on the Sun.

In 1859, a solar storm strongly affected the earth's magnetic field. It triggered communication lines, burned many telegraph offices, influences across Europe and North America. Another incident in 1989 also lost power in Canada, leaving six million people without electricity for nine hours.

Solar Storms occur when there is a big explosion on the Sun. The power of the explosion causes the protons and electrons to escape the gravitational pull of the Sun, causing them to fly into space to form huge charge clouds.

In 2012, the earth was fortunate to escape a narrow solar storm, with enough destruction to bring human civilization back to the 18th century. And NASA experts estimate there is a 12% possibility The giant solar storm similar to the 1859 event will affect the earth in the next 10 years.

Most of the solar storms have occurred leading to widespread power outages, disruption of the operation of satellites and malfunctioning traffic control networks. Electromagnetic waves do not carry enough force to penetrate the Earth's ionosphere, where radio signals work. However, according to the National Intelligence Council, we are now completely dependent on the electricity and satellite networks, so if we now encounter a solar storm like 1859, it will not be simple. are strange phenomena that will be a real disaster.

Most of the solar storms that happened have led to widespread power outages.

The change of magnetic field will produce electric current in any conductor and especially high voltage wires. It will overload the high voltage system, causing total power outages, even causing explosion in substations. Not only that, the fluctuation of magnetic fields can affect radio waves, signals from radio, communications and satellite systems.

In addition to the threat of a solar super typhoon, the NIC report also mentioned a number of other disasters, such as climate change, that could lead to mass destruction; Many important areas for agriculture can disappear due to erosion or tidal waves.

Solar Storms occur when there is a big explosion on the Sun. The power of the explosion causes protons and electrons to escape the gravitational pull of the Sun, causing them to fly into space to form huge charge clouds. When these charge clouds spread to Earth it would affect the Earth's magnetic field and the electromagnetic systems people use.
