The Sun, the source of all life, could put an end to the world as we know it in May 2013. The key word is could.
If a super solar flare storm penetrates our atmosphere, it could knock out all electricity and satellite communication on Earth.
I’m going with NASA’s version. Scientists there are much rosier about solar maximums and solar flares.
If a giant solar flare fireball hits earth in May 2013, it would be devastating. It would literally paralyze the USA for months to a year. Transformers would short-circuit and burn out. Satellites would be fried to a crisp. Computers would all go down. Again the key word is if.
According to AstroPhysicist Michio Kaku, this [solar maximum] happens about every 11 years but the next one [May 2013] could be a Big One. The last big one was in 1859.
Nasa scientist David Morrison says there’s nothing to worry about. It’s not a big one. I’m rooting for his take on the matter.
