NASA 2012 Prediction

nasa solar flare 2012 magnetic fieldThe year 2008  earned what NASA called the Sun’s blankest year of the space age; it hasn’t been this quiet since the year of 1913. No solar flares. However, sunspot counts for 2009 have dropped even lower.  “We’re experiencing a very deep solar minimum,” says solar physicist Dean Pesnell of the Goddard Space Flight Center.

NASA 2012 predictions, on the other hand, are radically effected. Solar physicist David Hathaway of the National Space Science & Technology Center (NSSTC) explains that currently the magnetic “belts” of the sun are turning very fast which means that lots of magnetic fields are being swept up, and that a future sunspot cycle is going to be intense. Solar flare and sunspot activity can be predicted even earlier, and Hathaway stated “The belt was turning fast in 1986-1996. Old magnetic fields swept up then should re-appear as big sunspots in 2010-2011.”

Like most experts in the field, Hathaway agrees that the next solar maximum should be a doozy. But he disagrees with one point — Mausumi Dikpati of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) forecast Solar Max at 2012. Hathaway believes it will arrive sooner, in 2010 or 2011.

There was a minor solar flare in the fall of 2005 that resulted in all GPS signals on one side of the Earth being noticeably degraded and sensitive electronic equipment on land malfunctioning . When those results are scaled up to the power of the super solar flares expected on or before 2012, researchers say the world would be set back many, many years as far as technology is concerned. Earth’s atmosphere protects us and our equipment from regular solar flares, but can be easily penetrated by a more powerful one. Everything from our modern home  electronics to the power grid are susceptible, even shielded military equipment.

The problem is, such intense solar activity have never been experienced in our modern, electronic age. An event like the one on September 1–2, 1859 (the largest recorded geomagnetic storm), which caused the failure of telegraph systems all over Europe and North America and created auroras visible in the Caribbean, would be utterly devastating today. The telegraph systems used then were wholly primitive compared to the microelectronics of today that are found in everything from wrist watches and home computers and space satellites.

    Hi, this is good, well prepared information. Time to start preparing, I just bought 2 55 gallon water drums :) My shotgun is on order
