Earth Almost Wiped Out, But No One Told Us
We've heard about solar flares and the devastating effect they can have on electronic devices. Now we find out that we almost were hit with a massive solar coronal mass ejection two years ago--and no one told us. Think about what would happen if all electronic and electrical devices around the world were disabled, all at the same time. The last time we were hit with a large coronal mass ejection was in the 1870s. It was so powerful that it melted telegraph wires.
