Quotes

"This is a kind of space weather event where the magnetic fields surrounding Earth compress and release. This oscillation is much like a spring moving back and forth, but unlike a spring, moving magnetic fields cause an unstable environment, setting charged particles moving and initiating electric currents."
"Certain wavelengths either do not make it through Earth's atmosphere or cannot be seen by our eyes, so we cannot use normal optical telescopes to look at the spectrum" said Dean Pesnell, the project scientist for the Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland
"IDEA will sample gas and plasma particles in a region of space lying closest to Earth's atmosphere that is not ..."
Dr Milligan said: "Solar flares can have significant effects on modern life. For example, they can throw GPS off by quite significant distances - tens of metres - so considering how many services now rely on GPS, that's a lot of potential for chaos."
