Still joy of summer sunny days in the Northern hemisphere.


The sun activity seems not as much spotlighted as other Earth-sweeping threats.
Extremes of sudden eruptions in the days of technology boost, that may be destroyed.

Solar maximums are generally hard to predict, they also show a trend of peaks once a century.
According to periodical data, a massive solar storm is to come around 2030 - 2050.

Existing observing systems and simulation technologies by SOHO, NSF, NOAA, involved research groups still have no confidence answering the question of possible significance of threat.

‘But don’t worry. Entrepreneurs are working to build “green” launchers that minimize pollutants’


Are we going to have better on-time predictions in the days of technology boost?

So what if we have to start all over? The planet is overpopulated anyway.

But let's be optimists! We get lucky. No damage done.
Yippeeeee! We can keep on destroying the planet ourselves.

The event that started the science to this type of solar activity was the Carrington solar flare event. It happened during solar maximum, but similar events do happen, though less often, during solar minimums.

We already have better understanding of how the Sun behaves, but we are far from being able to model it nicely.

I have encountered some 'alerted' information.

There has been an important statement made from the University of Michigan scientists for improvement of the solar storms predictions.

The level of modeling technologies and monitoring has a huge potential of improvement together with today’s technological development (computer science and AI).

An optimistic urge to keep eyes better open.

"There are only two natural disasters that could impact the entire U.S. One is a pandemic. And the other is an extreme space weather event."

Are asteroids included in space weather?

Lots of supplementary extraterrestrial observations of the Sun.

Dynamic promising private companies do

Mathworks does:

Question of persistence and collaboration (not questioning time) should give a step forward for the forecasts.
