Solar storms could lead to worldwide internet outages in the future

A scientist from the USA came to a disturbing research result: Solar storms endanger the global electricity and internet networks.

Stuttgart / Irvine – Solar storms have had devastating effects on the earth in the past. In the northeast of Canada, for example, a solar storm in 1989 caused the networks of the Canadian utility Hydro-Quebec to fail. The people there were without electricity for nine hours. Today, solar storms have far more serious effects on the earth – because they can completely paralyze not only the power grid, but also the Internet. This is the result of a researcher from the University of California.
As BW24 * reveals, a serious solar storm could lead to the "Internet apocalypse".
And that for a longer period of time. The submarine cables in particular are at risk from solar storms. Magnetized solar particles can seriously damage the cables. Repairing the cables is difficult due to the location of the cables under water and is accordingly time-consuming. * BW24 is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
