Do you think that this event will be catastrophic? The next time Solar Storm happens, the earth could be in trouble, according to The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) “The Largest Magnetic Storm on Record, The “Carrington Event” of August 27 to September 7, 1859″. Just a similar thing when watching the many sci-fi movies, to come to only know this kind of event happened in the shows. Storm solar will never happen again and cause humanity very hard to believe in it. Let’s make it real, if storm solar hit the earth or some countries in the world, for example, wide out technology as we know it, it will make the kids better living and more focus on study instead of wasting the time for the screens. Many kids nowadays, lacking visiting the library and read fewer books. Let just say, the parents bought their kid’s smart mobiles, phones or iPad, they think that their kids will need for purpose.
However, one study (PBS) stated that (American children ages 0 to 8 use screen media for an average of 2 hours and 19 minutes each day. These numbers have changed only slightly in the past 6 years. Children under age 2 spend about 42 minutes, children ages 2 to 4 spend 2 hours and 40 minutes, and kids ages 5 to 8 spend nearly 3 hours (2:58) with screen media daily. About 35 percent of children’s screen time is spent with a mobile device, compared to 4 percent in 2011.) Nearly all children ages 0 to 8 (98 percent) now live in a home that has a mobile device, a percentage now equal to TV.)
These kinds of idea relate to once though in Solar Storm to make earth better, if it really happens, can cost the trillions of dollars to a country to rebuild where the catastrophic hit.
In 1859 according to the research, an invisible wave crashed into Earth where it created electron, swept up like so much detritus in the magnetic current, coursed along telegraph wires. It was hard hit and crashed through it- ended up in delivering a sharp shock. It was the largest solar storm ever recorded. If it happened today, it would jeopardize global telecommunications, knock out orbiting satellites, and threaten to kill astronauts. NASA also stated that if those kinds of the solar storm hit the earth again in current, Human in space would be in peril too. The NASA also estimates suggest a modern event would cost humanity US $1 trillion to the US $2 trillion in the first year and take another four to 10 years to build the full recovery. Conclude that it can be a catastrophic event it if hit the earth we live in due to a solar flare.
What could you do if something like that happens?
To protect humanity, first, the humans on this earth planet need to use less fuel. There is nothing much human can do to perfect it happens because some people believe in spirit while some others think everything happens due to nature. For technology system, to protect emergency backup electronics such as a radio or laptop, put them (unplugged) inside a sealed cardboard box, then wrap the box completely with aluminum foil. Another solution is to line the inside of a metal garbage can with cardboard. Also, could affect human health due to the radiation rays. Thus, environmental and public scientist suggested that human needs to stay inside the house and keep away to stay outside due to radiation exposure. “Radiation exposure is a measure of the ionization of air due to ionizing radiation from photons; that is, gamma rays and X-rays. It is defined as the electric charge freed by such radiation in a specified volume of air divided by the mass of that air.” Wiki-Pedia- Radiation exposure
Are you prepared for something like that?
The cause “A solar flare as a violent explosion of magnetic energy on the sun. A Coronal Mass Ejection is a billion-ton cloud of gas exploding from the solar surface. Scientists can detect these ‘solar storms’ and measure how Earth’s environment changes. … Storms from the Sun sometimes make their way to Earth.” NASA- Research
Just like the Sci-Fi movies, to prepare we, stuff all cash you have under your mattress (due to the thieves or robberies), get a generator (to get lights for your house or family when all electrical went out), Don’t plan for any holidays( you cannot hide and no one will allow you and your family to stay with them) and much more. Also Follow the scientists and researcher’ suggestions, stay away from outside of my house and moved away from the electrical penal, turn out any electrical lights, and use candle lights if possible. Preparing for outages, I would always keep off the grid power, buying a battery backup for computers and emergency supplies (such as water and food, first aid kit, diapers for baby, baby supplies, candles, etc.) for your household. Some community is lacking the knowledge about the solar storm, also educate the community and neighbor to do the same things. Suggest that conduct more researches about Solar Storm and why it happens to the humans. NASA also had predicted that another catastrophic would come very soon and announced for emergency preparing for the future. What causes the solar to become catastrophic to earth and spaces, guess what to add more why, to prepare and protect it happens, human-made need to reduce (using more fuel, diesel, oil, plastic, etc.). Factories and industries need to use less fuel and reduce air pollution as much as they could.
