Nasa warns over upcoming 'solar storm'

Postby DarkUFO on Wed Jun 16, 2010 10:31 am

Nasa has warned that solar flare activity in 2013 could cause widespread disruptions and devastation.

Described as a "once in a generation solar storm" the flares could cause blackouts, communication disruptions and stop electrical devices from functioning, inflicting widespread devastation when it hits.

Britain could face widespread power blackouts and be left without critical communication signals for long periods of time, after the earth is hit by a once-in-a-generation “space storm”, Nasa has warned.

This is just another one of Nasa's many scary stories that never happen, if they really thought this was going to happen, it would be all over the news, there would be construction plans, etc to get through the strom etc.

Well, if this is true, if you want to believe these guys, who have said that world would go under ..eh.. what is it now?.. 15 times? :rofl: Well anyways, if this is true, look at the bright side, atleast it will be worth filming? :D So get all your cameras and such ready for the day. :w00t:

And btw, as brewski said, isn't it a year late? :D We are already dead 2012, so why care about this, huh? ;)

If it does happen it will be awful to go without machines for an extended period of time. I like how they do things for me :) On a side note I am investing in solar panels. :| :lol:
