it totally depends on the event at the moment they cannot calculate accuratly how long it takes for them to reach earth but when the 2 sats are in
position in 2010 we shall be able to get a better picture.
They usually take 2-3 days although it has been known to take less than a day. They can last minutes or hours or even weeks! hope this info is
enlightening people to the up and coming solar storms and what the dangers are.
late last year australia experienced freak electrical storms. I think this is v lightly to be a product of solar wind.
do people know that the main theory for mars loosing its atmousphere is due to this effect. (the solar wind litterally blowing away its atmousphere)
because its magnetic field became weak.
that is not a concern because theres plenty of evidence the earths magnetic field has became much weaker than it is now, so weak that its flipped its
north and south poles many times in the past. Although our concern is when our magnetic field is weak as it is now (10 - 15 percent weaker than in
1859) we are in danger of threat of our way of life, low orbiting sats, space people working on space stations shall be in risk of radiation, People
on planes risk of high radiation, maybe even people on earth risk of radiation. Powerlines conducting the electrically charged particles which will
explode the resisters which will take MONTHS if not YEARS to replace. Do the research for your self. in 1859 this would of been a concern but not as
it is now its much worse now in threatening our way of life. Just imagine a whole country like the usa being without power for months or years! Food,
Water, Heat, Transport, All affected, Health services police Etc Etc Etc
