  • But smart power grids, GPS navigation, air travel, financial services and emergency radio communications can all be knocked out by intense solar activity.
  • A major solar storm could cause twenty times more economic damage than Hurricane Katrina, warned the National Academy of Sciences in a 2008 report

A solar storm is an electrified gas cloud that erupts from the surface of the sun into space. They come from the space around sunspots.

If a powerful solar storm struck Earth, it could destroy crucial technology and cause a worldwide blackout.
