Solar Storm 2012 100 Equivalent Hydrogen Bomb?

After 10 years ‘asleep’ in the long sleep, the sun got up. The rise of the Sun makes full alert astronomers.

This week, several media of the United States (U.S.) preached, the U.S. space agency, NASA warns ‘tsunami Sun’ that creates the aurora phenomena – when the Sun flares hit the Earth’s shield in early August and then, only the beginning.

That’s just the beginning of a potentially massive Solar storms destroy power lines and satellites around the planet Earth.

NASA has deflected all the news, saying it could happen ‘in time 100 years or only 100 days’. However, Australian astronomers say, the scientific community space bet Solar storms could come sooner.

Despite issuing denials, NASA has been monitoring the storm activity in the Sun since 2006. And the news circulating in the U.S. called the solar storm can happen in the disaster that ‘predictable’ Hollywood – 2012.

Flashbacks to the back, sun storms in 1859 and 1921 led to chaos, the storm cut a wire network in a massive scale. And, more storms predicted in 2012 a negative effect.

“The overwhelming consensus among astronomers, the Sun in a storm in 2012 or 2013 would be the worst in 100 years,” said astronomy professor and columnist, Dave Reneke, such as pages loaded, August 25, 2010.

Warnings are especially intended for the airlines, telecommunications companies, and anyone who depends on a modern GPS system.

“One could even break the electrical circuit and the ‘hit’ the satellite in orbit, as happened this year,” added Reneke.

However, scientists do not really care whether the next Sun worst storm in history, or as severe storms in 1859.

Which became a source of anxiety is the fact that our society depends on the technology. Although nobody can predict the effects of sun storms in 2012-2013 digital society.

Meanwhile, Dr Richard Fisher, director of NASA’s Heliophysics Division, said the super storm blows such as ‘shock’ that could lead to disaster for world health, emergency services, even national security – if no precautions are taken.

And America became champions. Earlier this year the U.S. held a workout Boulder, Colorado, to map out what might happen if the earth was hit with a storm seintens storm in 1859 and 1921.

NASA states, according to the report of the National Academy of Sciences, if the same storm that occurred on this day in 1859, losses estimated at $ 1 to $ 2 trillion. Need 10 years to recover.

When the storm hit the Sun, the satellite is expected to like 50-year-old, totally useless GPS. Solar storms and an explosion suspected to have energy equivalent to 100 hydrogen bombs. Hydrogen bomb has the power greater than the atomic bomb.

Just to note, in March 1954, the U.S. has tested the first hydrogen bomb named “Bravo” at Bikini Atoll, Marshall Islands, the Pacific Ocean. Bravo 10 megatons of TNT or measuring approximately 700 times the energy of the atom bomb Little Boy. As a result, millions of tons of sand, rocks, plants and marine fauna flying within a radius of 20 miles to burn the sky forming a giant mushroom. Three Bikini Atoll, namely Bokonijien, Aerokojlol, and Nam, look no further above the water surface.

“We knew this was coming, but we do not know how bad it will happen,” said Dr Fisher told Reneke in the latest edition of Australasian Science.

“The system will halt. Suar sun will change in the earth’s magnetic field. It’s fast, like lightning. That the effects of the sun.”
