The solar activity

Have you ever heard that solar activity has a huge impact on our technology. Our technology in space, to our technology on the ground, historical evidence shows the vulnerability of modern technology when confronted with high energy particles, a by-product of space weather events. Equally important is to remember that space weather has a global footprint, thus the damage is felt worldwide rather than local, much like an outbreak. Impact on satellites, aviation, power grid, navigation and communication systems have all been previously documented.

Mate, sixty years ago I was communicating with HF radio and repeatedly changing frequencies to account for the effect of solar activity. Sixty years before I was born solar activity was affecting communications. It's not a new problem. Scientists understand it, engineers take account of it and somehow your telephone just keeps on working. I'd be a bit surprised to find this was new to anyone here.

This is basic knowledge. What's the point of your post?

Maybe he recently read about it and wanted to share his latest discovery with us.

But yes, its basic knowledge these days, during heavy solar activity it is sometimes even on the news.

It's even in primary school text books. When my twins were in school one of them did a project on the way sunspot activity affects radio. Of course, she's over 30 now and maybe kids no longer learn science.
