As the Sun Awakens, NASA Keeps a Wary Eye on Space Weather



June 4, 2010: Earth and space are about to come into contact in a way that's new to human history. To make preparations, authorities in Washington DC are holding a meeting: The Space Weather Enterprise Forum at the National Press Club on June 8th.

Richard Fisher, head of NASA's Heliophysics Division, explains what it's all about:
"The sun is waking up from a deep slumber, and in the next few years we expect to see much higher levels of solar activity. At the same time, our technological society has developed an unprecedented sensitivity to solar storms. The intersection of these two issues is what we're getting together to discuss."


Coming activity is likely to affect power grids, radio communications, GPS, etc.

Time to find ourselves some new way to produce energy since TPTB refuses to let many inventions go on the market. I just hope the Sun won't cook us in the meantime...
