According to the space weather observation data released by the Institute of Applied Geophysics, yesterday there was an intense glow in the sun M5.5 It lasted 21 minutes, according to a Russia Today report.
The institute’s statement indicates that this glow was accompanied by the ejection of coronal masses and radio flashes of different categories. II And IV spectrogram.
Based on these data, it is not excluded that there will be a malfunction in the work of the Earth’s navigation systems, since after 29 minutes of the glow, streams of protons began to penetrate into the near-Earth space, and the effect of the X-ray emissions of the sun on the ionosphere is equivalent to R2, which will lead to problems in the ground navigation systems and loss of communication with ships and aircraft within tens of minutes. And that the danger level from the flow of streams of energetic protons for the solar flare is S1 This is the lowest level.
It has been previously announced that the power of the solar flare is equivalent to about one billion hydrogen bombs. And that 150 million kilometers means nothing for solar energy. Streams of radioactive particle streams disable spacecraft, and if an unprotected person were exposed to them, they would kill him. But the Earth’s atmosphere protects us from its impact, and magnetic storms resulting from the sun’s flares when it collides with the Earth’s magnetic field affect human health.
