Satellites, pagers, cell phones and electrical grids could be affected Friday afternoon by a powerful stream of energized gas and particles from the sun.

The coronal mass ejection, or CME, is expected to reach Earth about 3 p.m. EDT and its effects could last 12 to 18 hours, according to space weather forecasters.

We shoud have been hitted by now... Didn't noticed anything strange... Hey, I'll be happy as long as my computer keep working on...

Have you had problems regarding this?
I bet it will be a pain in the ass for all the sattelite pirate lol..

I love it when nature messes with man's technology.

My power went out in my room today, but I think it was because I blew out a circuit, I sure hope it obliterates something.

So it's sort of like a global temporary EMP blast? How interesting...

Just imagine what would happen if the flare completely killed all of Earth's electronics. Chaos would envelop the globe. I think we're waaaay to dependent on techonology nowadays. No one really bothers to prepare for a mojor disister, like an earthquake or something. It would be pretty much the end of the world if a blast from the sun kills all of our electrical stuff.

I wouldn't be much affected by it, as long as I have my books.

But then, ATS would be gone!!!!
