What would happen if we lost electricity?
solar storms go, the Valentine's Day flare was actually modest. But
the burst of activity is only the start of the upcoming solar maximum,
due to peak in the next couple of years.
"The sun has an activity cycle, much like hurricane season," Tom Bogdan,
director of the Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado,
said earlier this month at a meeting of the American Association for
the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C.
hibernating for four or five years, not doing much of anything." Now
the sun is waking up, and even though the upcoming solar maximum may
see a record low in the overall amount of activity, the individual
events could be very powerful.
In fact, the biggest solar storm
on record happened in 1859, during a solar maximum about the same size
as the one we're entering, according to NASA.
What if the whole world lost electricity?
What if ONLY America (or this continent) lost electricity?
