That's funny... just as I was clicking on your post, in the background I was listening to the documentary "2012: Science or Supersition?" and at
the exact same time a scientist was talking about coronal ejections from the sun.
They were saying that "unprecedented activity on the sun and increasing natural disasters on earth, have led some scientists to predict an ominious
climax in or around the year 2012."
"Author Lawrence Josepsh forged an understanding of the scientific data and the perils we may be facing."
"Solar storms will be climaxing in 2012 and the global satellite system is therefore at risk. Let's examine what the global satellite system means
to us" telecommunications, funds transfered, military, climate..everything about these things uses a satellite and they're not hardened sufficiently
against solar output. Moreover, I found out our miltary installations have been hogged off on commercial satellites which are not hardened. So these
satellites are open to solar attack. When the sun has storms, it shoots out billion ton blasts of protons and radiation. Most of it goes off in
other directions, but a certain percentage of it will hit the earth. It's just the law of averages. It usally takes two or three days for these
coronal mass ejections to hit the earth, but we've been finding something strange.... In January 2005 there was one that made it in 30 minutes...
Unless Einstein was mistaken, if that thing cut down its travel time and made it in 22 minutes or 8 minutes or the speed of light..we'd be completely
