Coronal Mass Ejection
As our civilization increasingly depends on electronic infrastructure, we need to brace for the impacts of space weather.
“Our technology is getting more advanced, so we’re more susceptible to space weather.”
The looming threat of extreme space weather has FEMA preparing for the perfect solar storm, and an unimaginable power grid disaster, FOIA documents reveal.
