Under Threat From the Final Frontier: There are more weather hazards than just the terrestrial.In September of 1859 a solar storm struck the Earth. The atmosphere became so energized that telegraph operators in North America and Europe received electrical shocks while operating their equipment. In March of 1989 a solar storm hit the Earth, leaving more than 6 million Canadians without power. The storm was so intense that the aurora could be seen as far south as Florida.Solar Storms are bursts of highly charged energy emitted during solar flares. While the magnetosphere protects us from most solar energy, it can occasionally be overwhelmed. When this happens the impacts can range from radio interreference to blown fuses in electrical devices. In extreme examples, power systems can be overloaded leading to widespread blackouts. Satellites can also be disabled as their sensitive electrical components are overwhelmed by the massive amounts of electrical energy leaving systems like GPS inoperative, or cause them to reenter Earth’s atmosphere and burn up. This happened in February of 2022 when 40 SpaceX Starlink satellites fell victim to a solar storm.Do you have a plan in place for solar storms?
