Another problem we aren’t prepared for.

Winston Churchill:  “There is nothing so exhilarating then to shot at…and missed”.

Scientists say worst of strong solar storm will likely miss Earth

A strong solar flare is blasting its way to Earth, but the worst of its power looks like it will barely skim above the planet and not cause many problems.

It has been several years since Earth has had a solar storm of this size coming from sunspots smack in the middle of the sun, said Tom Berger, director of the Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado. The flare on the sun barely hits the “extreme” on forecasters’ scale, but with its worst effects missing Earth it is only looking “potentially strong” at most when it arrives at Earth as a solar storm, he said.

See you Monday,  if all technic civilization on Earth isn’t wiped out.

    Wrap your wallet with aluminum foil 🙂 SF D

    • My wallet is already made with a nickle-copper mesh, but that’s to keep the government out ;-}

      Unfortunately plain aluminum foil unless grounded will only re-emit the energy on the other side. Secondly, the value of the aluminum foil exceeds the value of most Chinese made crap we buy.
