A massive solar flare disrupted radio communications on Earth for two hours. The solar flare, the largest recorded since 2017, was powerful enough to impact parts of the US and other locations around the world. Scientists have long warned about the potential havoc that powerful solar storms can cause, including disruptions to electric equipment, power grids, and satellites. With the Sun entering the most active part of its 11-year cycle, more solar flares are expected in the future. This event highlights the need for preparedness and mitigation strategies to minimize the impact of solar activity on our technological infrastructure.
