Powerful solar activity threatens to leave humans without communication, knocking out satellites, mobile phones and other equipment. About this newspaper "Komsomolskaya Pravda".
The fact is that in the period from September 22 to 26 at the Sun was recorded strong activity, the source of which was located in the so-called core 1302.
At the time flashes "Zone 1302" was on the edge of the world, and so most of the ejected plasma touched the earth on a tangent. Meanwhile, it was enough to cause the earth powerful magnetic storms.
Now there is a possibility of a second wave of outbreaks, but now the source — "Zone 1302" — is not on the edge, and in the center of the Sun. Thus there is a threat of "direct impact" on our planet.
In the case of this scenario, the entire plasma will be in charge of the Earth, which will lead to big trouble. May go down satellites, computers, mobile phones and power lines.
The center of the forecast space weather of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States believes that the likelihood of such a threat exists, and it is 40%.
