Sunlight hitting Venus’s clouds could support life on the planet
Global positioning system (GPS) satellites are extremely vulnerable to massive solar storms
If they go down, GPS-dependent infrastructure such as electric grids, financial marke
The combined failure of these can very well bring America’s collapse,
Solar storms occur when the sun emits massive bursts of energy in the form of solar flares
These two events are not directly dangerous to life on Earth, since the planet’s magnetic
the stream of charged particles it carries will strike the planet and disturb its magnetic field.
This disturbance, which is called a geomagnetic storm, can damage or destroy satellites and disrupt
