So we are entering a time when technology and solar storms could cause some serious problems, and the article mentions that the economic impact could
be much worse than Katrina if grids go down, satelites, ect., during these solar storms. Personally I have been watching the sun's activity for 3
years now, not professionally, just out of interest and I noted that (who could miss it really) there has been intense increased activity this year,
also many think it is related to earthquakes and volcanic activity. As the sun 'wakes up' I think we will see much more of it. Nasa and NOAA will be
the think tanks on this topic and will be trying to find ways to help stave off problems during intense storms, I am glad to see this.
But I wonder what exactly prompted NASA to open itself up to acknowledging that which many of us on ATS have been saying for a while now, that the sun
is gettin a little crazy?!
