The Sun: Inferno in the Sky

  • Nature

Summary

A look at solar storms, such as the one in July 2012 when a massive eruption on the sun hurled a colossal cloud of solar matter into space - the most severe sunstorm in 150 years. Fortunately, the Earth was not in its direct path, but experts believe it's only a matter of time before a violent solar storm hits the planet. These clouds of charged matter can wreak havoc in electrical systems, resulting in large-scale power outages and the total loss of satellites.
