Solar flare could disrupt Earth communications



Correct me if I'm wrong but afaik these flares will affect the countries closer to the poles more than the ones around the equator due to the way the magnetic field is weaker at true North & South. If it was anything like the solar flare that knocked out New York and surrounds in 2006 we shouldn't have much to worry about.

Still nothing like a bit of fear mongering to get people all uppity :D
