What kind of problems could be caused by a massive solar flare?
ernard 2 years ago
There was a pretty major solar flare a month or two ago, but I didn't hear of any significant problems it caused. I remember that there was concern that it could damage satellites, and the astronauts on the ISS went into a heavily shielded area to be safe. So I understand that satellites are at risk in such an event, but what about down here on terra firma? What kind of problems would it likely cause, and is there anything we can do about it?
