Feel the Force: Solar Winds Could Create a Geomagnetic Storm on Earth!

As we approach the peak of solar cycle 25, the ongoing surge of solar activity persists. A solar cycle, lasting 11 years, involves fluctuations in the Sun’s activity. The lowest point, referred to as the solar minimum, is when activity is at its lowest, while the solar maximum represents the period of highest activity. With the solar maximum drawing near, experts anticipate an increase in CMEs, sunspots, solar flares, and solar storms that Earth may encounter. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which includes a full suite of instruments for observing…

NASA Warns of C-class Solar Flare Risk: Key Details Revealed About the Sun

The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), a joint project between NASA and the ESA, was launched in 1995 with the purpose of studying the Sun. It officially began its operations in May 1996 and was initially planned as a 2-year mission. However, it has now surpassed that timeframe and has been in service for 25 years. NASA states that SOHO’s objective is to comprehensively examine the Sun, from its innermost core to its outer corona and solar winds. It accomplishes this by capturing images of the sun’s corona, measuring the…

NASA Warns of Possible M-Class Solar Flares from Sunspot

Solar flares, similar to asteroids, pose a danger to Earth. Powerful solar flares can lead to power and radio disruptions lasting for hours or even days, trigger auroras, expose airplane passengers to radiation, and potentially impact elections. Technological devices are particularly vulnerable during these flares. This is because when cosmic rays hit our planet, they release various particles such as energetic neutrons, muons, pions, and alpha particles. While these particles do not harm humans directly, they can penetrate integrated circuits and cause damage, often altering stored data. As the solar…
