If by some odd chance the Mayans are right about the end of the world in 2012, be rest assured it won’t be because of a massive solar flare. Well, so says NASA. They are convinced the Earth won’t be burned to a crisp because the sun isn’t powerful enough to send a mega fireball 93 million miles. Hmm, so it’s back to the drawing board you friggin doomsayers!!!

OK loons, no need to panic but what’s up with the latest solar eruption? A recent solar flare has just messed with China’s radio communications and NASA are warning there’s more to come. Seems Earth is due for a geomagnetic storm which is expected wreak havoc on our high tech infrastructure and this little flare is a warm up of things yet to come. So what the hell is a solar storm? It’s when weather in space causes a a temporary disturbance to the Earth’s magnetosphere. The last time we had a big solar storm was in 1921 and it caused global chaos, wiping out telegraph wires and this time they expect it to wipe out the internet too. Bye-bye satellites and electrical power grids. Scientists are predicting the storm will hit Earth in 2012 .Oooh goodie, I just hope it isn’t on the 21st December because the Mayans have already penciled that date in on their calendars.
Psst Does that mean I will have to Morse code my friggin blog posts?
