Geomagnetic Storm,Why worry?

In Astrophysics, lifestyle on February 21, 2011 at 08:17

Too much of dependence has made Man tense for things that really do not count, for which he has become an addict.

Natural Phenomenon are there always.

We are aware them only now.

We might have many more things in the Universe that, in our limited view(which we  do not accept), might be more dangerous than what we know.

Universe will go on despite our Knowledge of it.

Universe is indifferent to every thing,including us.

Why worry about things we can not control?

The Earth just dodged a solar bullet. But it won’t be the last. Experts say a geomagnetic storm, sparked by a massive solar eruption similar to the one that flared toward the Earth on Tuesday, is bound to strike again, and the next one could wreak more havoc than the world has ever seen.

Modern society is increasingly vulnerable to space weather because of our dependence on satellite systems for synchronizing computers, navigational systems, telecommunications networks and other electronic devices.

A potent solar storm could disrupt these technologies, scorch satellites, crash stock markets and cause months-long power outages, experts said Saturday at the American Association for the Advancement of Science‘s annual meeting.

The situation will only get more dire because the solar cycle is heading into a period of more intense activity in the coming 11 years.
