Earth being bombarded by 500km/s solar storm which could affect technology

  • March 01, 2021

Additionally, a surge of particles can lead to high currents in the magnetosphere, which can lead to higher than normal electricity in power lines, resulting in electrical transformers and power stations blowouts, as well as a loss of power.

Experts have classified the current storm as being G2-class.

This can lead to “weak power grid fluctuations” and have a “minor impact on satellite operations”, according to Space Weather.

The solar winds are hitting our planet at a staggering 500 kilometres per second, or 1.8 million kilometres per hour.
