Dr. Liam Fox, Britain’s Secretary of Defense, warns at the international conference that Iran and North Korea could destroy vital systems by way of electronic pulse attack. Compared to the outcome of a solar flare, a magnetic eruption that holds a variety of measurements.
Dr. Fox claims, Telegraph reports, that there is a good chance a nuclear weapon launch into space could form a measured electromagnetic burst knocking out a targeted area’s frequency electronics. Iran’s recent activity, or non-activity, isn’t helping much.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA.org) claims Iran’s recent objections resulting in disruption to nuclear inspectors destinations creates fear of misuse in nuclear technology. Political winds try to avoid a future nuclear storm, especially in the sky. By why?
When a super solar storm could be weighed at 100 million hydrogen bombs plus, what’s one nuclear explosion in the sky, right? The theoretic obvious tops all with human deaths, non-isolated radioactivity, and as noted in Dr. Fox’s comparison, they could produce solar flare effects.
Solar flares work with the eleven-year sunspot cycle similar to the Earth’s cycle and the ocean conveyor belt. Differences, an “electrically-conducted” gas current rules the sun’s belt unlike Earth’s water belt. However, both control their sphere’s weather.
NASA defines sunspot cycles as becoming decayed “releasing magnetic flux”, and just as a cholesterol clogged artery, the magnetized decay builds in high solar latitudes resulting in “electrified” gas. If flare activity is large enough through coronal mass ejection (CMA) society could face an approximate 50+ year setback in telecommunications with blackouts, satellite malfunctions, hospital issues, and so on. Imagine no computer, no television, no cell phone, and other forms of high-end electronics that run off of a power grid source. Sci-fi scary as it sounds, not as scary as the prediction dates.
We turn to David Hathaway and Mausami Dikpati.
Hathaway, National Space Science & Technology Center (NSSTC) solar physicist, claims a solar flare storm is coming in 2010 (no sign yet) or 2011 (too soon to tell). Dikpati from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) pins the distant solar kiss in 2012. Aztec non-related. Both reports define a vague timeline. However it is not about the time for Astro Physicist Michio Kaku who encouraged preventative planning and preparation on a 2009 Fox News report (Youtube).
No matter who is the best candidate for electronic related predictions, one thing is definite. Britain races against “war bust” as NASA races against space program cuts. The plot thickens?
Last week Newsweek released a story surrounding Britain’s deep military cuts described as “bad, really bad”. Yet Dr. Fox agrees with Prime Minister David Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague when it comes to remaining strong with no “strategic shrinkage”, ready to intervene when requested. Time will tell just how deep global interests will bite down on a nuclear bomb fly-by threat.
Meanwhile, it’s nothing new, NASA also faced cuts to the space programs along with other areas.
Conspiracy theorists may chalk the massive burst versus the nuclear bomb as a way for two agencies to continue collecting funds and support in order to remain fully active. Motive or not, there will always be skeptics.
So, what comes first, a nuclear space strike or NASA’s 2010, 2011, 2012, or 2013 super solar storm? The answer is simple.
While it could take time for Iran and North Korea to detour any upcoming nuclear inspections – and so on – a recent Daily Mail news report suggests an active 2013 solar flare event. We can predict 2014 solar flare, no, 2015, 2016?
Between human aggression and sun aggression, it depends on who spits first.
