Huge Solar Flares in 2013
A few years ago scientists predicted huge Solar flares erupting in 2013. If the prediction comes true it could cause wide spread blackouts and global chaos.
A scientist Richard Carrington observed the enormous solar storm in 1859. It wrecked and burned Telegraph wires across Europe and America. That big flare covered two-third of the Earth’s sky in a blood red aurora.
It is thought that it could happen again and causing cloud storms in cities like London, Paris and New York. It occurred already in 1989 on a smaller scale of solar flare which cut out power stations in Quebec, Canada. Was it a forewarning and Mother Nature is doing its worst in 2013? Then there is the other fact that the Mayan calendar finish at the end of December. I don’t want to be a bearer of gloom and disaster but it certainly makes me wonder.
Today it would cause a horrendous effect with our highly technical world and human relying almost completely on it. Scientists try to build a strategy against the possibility of a disaster. However, when Mother Nature speaks, as it showed in very recent time, any human effort to counteract will be almost insignificant. The power of nature, as disastrous it is, is one thing where human beings look small and powerless. It also gives a lesson again of the very first attempt to be more powerful in the Bible story of The Tower of Babylon. As previously mentioned the lesson of a great disaster but nevertheless human being will realize how powerless they really are even today with all the technology.
It is thought that in 2013 the Sun will reach a critical stage in its cycle. Scientists assume that a magnetic surge of energy in the atmosphere would start radiation storms and this will cause massive power surges.
University of St Andrews’ scientists studying atmospheric systems believe dust clouds in space could be full of rubies and sapphires. However, it is no good getting our hopes up because it is assumed they will rain down on far away planets during these dust storms.
One thing the scientists do acknowledge that the Sun is a powerful planet and has the infrastructure to demolish our highly developed world. Therefore it is necessary to continue to explore and understand our universe. Today we have an early warning system because of the exploration and the spacecraft monitoring the Sun. However, in spite of all the warning systems already established for the earthquakes and tsunamis it seems that Mother Nature always has its last and more powerful say.
