Solar Storms

   Posted by: jmueller    in Miscellany

I was listening to part of the Paul Edwards program on WLQV 1500 AM yesterday while I was cooking dinner.  He was talking about scientific predictions about major solar storms in 2013.  Apparently this is something that happens once every generation.  The implications of this could be devastating to our ‘electronic’ society.  This would be the first generation of humans that would be facing this with this level of electronic and magnetic based technology.

Here is a link to a very good article from the NOAA which describes this in much greater depth.

I am starting to think that I should invest in companies that make optical media for computers, and magnetic shielding for electronic systems.  And of course, start looking at a backup system for my own computers that would not be prone to the magnetic fluctuations.
