The prediction of the anomalous solar activity, which plunges the earth in man-made chaos did back in 2008 and now is not justified.
The second day all the news feeds on the Internet are full of predictions about the end of the world, which will begin on September 21. One other terrible — the sun will burn the earth will be a global power outage because of the strongest in the history of the planet's magnetic storms, and a lot more then that, in the end, lead to the destruction of humanity.
The cause of birth of such statements is. This is a global forecast made by scientists of the American Academy of Sciences four years ago. Then the researchers analyzed data on solar activity, have tried to predict what might happen in the case of strong solar storm. Such presumed to be happen in September, 2012.
Sun will throw our way clouds of hot plasma, will the so-called "ideal" electromagnetic storm, the consequences of which would be comparable to the fall of a giant asteroid or nuclear war. According to the scenario, could shut down electricity, all the computers fail, satellites, hanging in orbit, fall to the ground … In short, the disaster movie "2012."
However, the forecast predictions, but scientists clearly miscalculated. The last major outbreak of the sun was registered on September 1st 2012. Two days later, a stream of charged particles hit Earth and brought our magnetic shell at a slight confusion. Since then, the light behaves quietly. According to all the agencies that monitor space weather, from 21 to 23 September solar activity "will be at a low level." According to "The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory", the last day the sun had three outbreaks, but none of the threads is not moving toward Earth. So the people of the world can subside quietly. At the very least, September 22, the end of the world just does not come. And electricity outlets will surely be, unless of course your house does not burn anything.
NASA responded to the naive question THREE EARTHMEN
1. Is there a danger of giant solar storms in 2012?
— Solar activity has a regular cycle with peaks approximately every 11 years. In these moments of peak solar flares can cause interruption of satellite communications. But now, engineers are trying to build electronics that are protected from solar storms. There are no specific risks associated with the year 2012. The next solar maximum is in 2012-2014. According to the forecasts it will be the average solar cycle, no different from the previous one.
2. Are there any threats to the Earth in 2012?
— Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012. Our planet got along with the Sun more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide do not see threats to its continued existence. It all started with the predictions of the ancient Sumerians discovered that the planet Nibiru is headed toward Earth. The catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened, the end of the world was moved to December 2012. Then, these fables associated with the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 — hence the end of the world on December 21, 2012.
3. Could a meteorite hit the Earth in 2012?
— Earth is always under the threat of strikes comets and asteroids, although this is rare. The last big impact cosmic body was 65 million years ago, which probably led to the extinction of the dinosaurs. Today NASA astronomers doing research, there's even a "Spaceguard," which explores a large near-Earth asteroids. We have already determined that there are no threatening asteroids as large as the one that killed the dinosaurs. This work is done openly — for all the news you can follow on the site NASA, and you can see for yourself that nothing is going to happen in 2012.
WHAT ARE AFRAID OF PHYSICS
The last solar storm, the most powerful of all the described man occurred in 1859. Then shone not only the North Pole, who assumes the solar bombardment. Unusual Lights seen even in the Caribbean and Peru. Then, out of order telegraph systems, compasses and could not figure out where the north, where the south.
According to the analysis of cortical layers of ice on the pole, similar anomalous storms occur once every 500 years. But mene powerful storms that occur about once every 50 years, can destroy space satellites, disrupt radio communications and cause a global outage.
Of course, a calendar of such events is not, but scientists speculate that in the event of an alarm to be ready.
