    Scientists say that our sun is going into a turbulent phase of its weather cycle that will last about two and a half years:

    Forecasters keep eye on looming 'Solar Max'

    I think it's rather poetic that this thread isn't super popular... :shuffle:

    I found the article very interesting, and, erm, a little terrifying. :eek:

    There WAS an earthquake in Indiana this morning. Felt it in Dayton Ohio. Strange stuff.

    The rest of you can worry about Global Climate Change. I save all my armageddon worries for Solar Storms with a teeny bit of worry left for an airborne Ebola epidemic.

    Doesn't this mean that astronauts get irradiated by a solar storms! Astronauts hid deep within the body of the International Space Station, but still reported radiation effects and ocular 'shooting stars'. They are all going to get cancer :eek: Does "ocular 'shooting stars' " mean that their vision was affected?

    That's it, change of plans, I no longer want to be an astronaut.
