“This is no run-of-the-mill event. Many science papers will be studying this for years to come.”
I have to wonder about these solar storms, esp. The Great Solar Flash. Although heavily represented on the Q-map, when I listen more toward the end to what Rich has to say, it seems somewhat similar to what Doc has said. I don’t know, but I think a large CME is very much on the table with regard to events to come.
For the record, I do not personally agree with all that’s said here, but are some good points.
