    If an x class flare fires from that 04 sunspot beta delta gamma region we prolly wont be hearing from Stern on the air again :whistle:

    Well, we probably don't know. But there's lots of things we don't know. :ohnoes:
    Something we could know for a "fraction of the cost of a space shuttle mission".
    :cmon:

    Now NASA and the space sciences know the pain of the oceanic sciences. No funding for sciences that don't serve a military purpose or capture the mass public interest. As our political and self-serving "religous" leaders attack public ed and science and dumb down the public less exploration and science advancement that are the real cornerstone of American exceptionalism will be traded for the fantasy of power of the people being able to own muskets and fight themselves under the guise of miltia. In the words of Jesse, Science yeah! Otherwise we dying slowly in an RV in the desert or being bullied by crazed homicidal paranoid middle-manager and his armed thugs.

    Yeah, but one would think the military would love the thought of an incoming asteroid.
    Something new to shoot at! :idea:

    It's like Armageddon or Deep Impact.

    Don't let the smell of the roses hide the bullshit it grows in. NASA has all the money they could ever need. NSA is directly over them. They used nasa to order another huge load of ar15's a couple months back..Why the fuck does a nasa employee need an AR and be proficient in pistol/shotgun/long rifle?

    Every solar event that happens now is edited by NSA order. Now what the fuck has solar activity to do with USA security??? They aren't even close to being intelligent about it either. The edit the sat data that has video of the event BUT they leave all the hard data there that tells the same exact story. It's either the nasa scientists' FU to NSA or they really are that dumb.

    OH and as for the likelihood of this happening? There's a possibility. That's a big area directly earth facing. (earth isn't at the solar equator, we are south of it a bit) and the sy=un has had 2 comets sundive over the last 72 hours so it's been firing cme's and flares since then. The x class is back down to 40% but the m has risen back to over 50%. We want M not X if the sun does fart at us.

    Neither....well sorta. What happens is the magnetic radiation wont be shunted around the earth by the magnetosphere. It's too powerful compared to what our natural protection is. Now if we were a nonelectric people this would be the end of it. We're not. The MR will cause huge induced currents which will fry every wire pair that it crosses. At least 1/2 of the earth but more likely all of it.

    "So we have no more electricity that's it?" NO, with induced current comes increased heat. Last time this happened it was called the carrington event. Teletype offices burst into flames. There is growing evidence that the chicago fire was not from a cow kicking over an oil lamp, but from induced current form another x flare. People were found dead, fully clothed, no burns whatsoever, BUT the coins in their pocket were welded together. During that same time frame 6 major fires broke out. But like with Hanks' death, the biggest event took the headlines.

    Ok think of a transformer. It takes energy and transforms it across an air gap to a different voltage either stronger or weaker depending on the amount of wire used to form both sides of the air gap. The sun is a huge coil of wire, the earth is tiny coil of wire. The earth's electric infrastructure can't possibly absorb a full load from the sun so the left over has to go somewhere. It will overload and catch fire to everything that the current goes through. In your house it will be metal studs and every bit of wiring.

    or nothing at all. I'm just saying this is the biggest risk position we have been in in a long long time. There are 2 main types of sun spots. Beta gamma, and beta gamma delta. There are others but for now this is enough. A beta gamma is a + - region. A BDG is a combination of+ +- - configuration. With the extra polarities in such proximitry the chance of larger coronal mass ejections is greater then just a positive and negative area. That 04 area is BDG
