Link2Mobile. USA. Many people began to worry that the storm of the sun with a peak of 22-year magnetic cycle and 11-year sunspot cycle will occur in 2013.Predicted by many scientists that electronic life will die, not unless the internet. Then how do I save myself from this storm?
NASA scientists have warned of this space weather can affect the earth.
"We know that this will come soon but we do not know how bad things are going," said Dr. Richard Fisher, director of NASA's Heliophysics Division, told the Daily Telegraph.
He added that preparations may be the same with the occurrence of storms. Although the authorities know of this incident more closely, but can not guess how serious the problem.
Here are tips to protect yourself and your family during the storm geomagnetis quoted from Wired.
Buy a Faraday cage.
Faraday cage is an enclosure of material that blocks the external static electric field. If the conductor is thick but the hole was smaller than the wavelength of the incoming electromagnetic radiation, the radiation will not be able to pass it.
Form of the cage is the reason why the phone does not work in some buildings and elevators, microwave why does not hurt, and why a piece of tin in the pouch or bag can be detected RFID.
Save your money under your bed
Most modern bank is run by electronic systems. Your Money actually recorded on a computer database and located in various regions. If the disaster is limited to certain areas, it does not cause many problems.
However, these policies can not be done if progress globally. If the database magnetically disturbed because the sun spark, so will your money. So much better to save your money for a while, not in the database.
Power Area in northern Europe, especially England is actually quite vulnerable. Magnetic waves can easily beat the electricity that was built around the world. Storm in 1989, estimated to be less powerful than the 2013 event, had damaged the Hydro-Quebec power grid, causing the satellite out of control and stop all forms of trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
Do not Leasure
Going away from home without the energy source is more risky than being at home. The interior of the aircraft is essentially a Faraday cage, where the magnetic field will cause damage in aircraft navigation systems. Therefore, it is difficult or impossible for aircraft to conduct flights.
Electronic objects deaths will occur without notice at any time, so risky if you go to a place with a vehicle when the traffic lights can not be used, or street lights not working.
Big storm will create an electronic aorora extraordinary. And this does not only look at the poles. During the 1989 hurricanes, but also looks at the aurora borealis and aurora southern region in 1859 is considered the most spectacular in history.
