[Politico] Solar Flares Expected to Disrupt GPS Service This Weekend

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Energy released from recent solar plasma blasts from the Sun are expected to reach Earth throughout today and tomorrow, potentially disrupting communications and electrical grids, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The satellite systems that could face disruptions are GPS and high-frequency radio waves, which airlines use for communication.

Friday’s explosion is second of three recent blasts on the sun’s surface directed toward the Earth. The experts said the current wave could go on until Saturday night at the latest. “You can think of them as sort of tsunamis in space,†said SWPC Director Tom Bogdan. “The first one was fairly weak, and we’re now seeing the next one coming in.â€

Blah blah blah. They always say this crap about solar flares disrupting things, but my weekend goes as expected without issues.

Sensationalist media just trying to scare people.

This one isn't sensationalism. Solar flares could be a real problem.
