A ‘Knowing’ style apocalypse is in order in 2013, predict NASA scientists. Apparently, the big ball of glowing gas that we lovingly call our sun is sleeping, despite the abnormally high solar activity over the past 50 years. Confused? I was.
If we approach this with the idea of the sun as being like the earth, with solar tremors and flares being equal to our mini-earthquakes and other lesser seismic activity. If this constant release of energy were to dissipate, eventually something would have to give and trigger one big earthquake, eruption or tsunami – hello massive solar storm.
