What actually happens in my house?
And HOW does it happen?
It would depend on the magnitude of the flare or CME, and if it hit Earth directly or was a glancing blow. Electrical disturbances, the grid and
transformers being damaged or destroyed is very possible, as NASA keeps warning us, but at larger magnitudes Earth could end up looking like Mars, or
worse still, Mercury. Plasma physics is what applies, so you end up with sputtering and ion etching, which can either deposit large amounts of matter,
or remove large amounts, but tough to say exactly which, these are very chaotic events. Your house, and everything else on the surface of the Earth,
with a large enough CME hit, would be returned instantly to its constituent protons and electrons and ions. Deep underground might be the only safe
place, which is likely why the governments have built so many underground facilities, which they say are bomb shelters, but the biggest potential bomb
is really the Sun.
