Scientists have warned that the earth could be hit by a wave of violent space storm tomorrow after a massive explosion on the sun. NASA astronomers witnessed a huge flare above a giant sunspot the size of our planet and linked to an even larger eruption across the Sun’s surface.
According to recent reports, a really big solar eruption could destroy satellites and wreck power and communications grids around the globe if it happened today.
Nasa recently warned our planet could face widespread power blackouts and be left without critical communication signals for long periods of time, after the earth is hit by a once-in-a-generation “space storm”.
It remains unclear, however, how much damage this latest eruption will cause the world’s communication tools.
