Melbourne, Aug 26 (ANI): Astronomers are predicting that a massive solar storm, much bigger in potential than the one that caused spectacular light shows on Earth earlier this month, is to strike our planet in 2012 with a force of 100 million hydrogen bombs.
Several US media outlets have reported that NASA was warning the massive flare this month was just a precursor to a massive solar storm building that had the potential to wipe out the entire planet's power grid.
Despite its rebuttal, NASA's been watching out for this storm since 2006 and reports from the US this week claim the storms could hit on that most Hollywood of disaster dates - 2012.
Similar storms back in 1859 and 1921 caused worldwide chaos, wiping out telegraph wires on a massive scale. The 2012 storm has the potential to be even more disruptive.
"The general consensus among general astronomers (and certainly solar astronomers) is that this coming Solar maximum (2012 but possibly later into 2013) will be the most violent in 100 years," News.com.au quoted astronomy lecturer and columnist Dave Reneke as saying.
"A bold statement and one taken seriously by those it will affect most, namely airline companies, communications companies and anyone working with modern GPS systems.

At least it’s not 100 “M-birds”.
Save us Al Gore...save us!!!!!!!
So I should take a round-the-world cruise now, and really pile up the Mastercard/Visa card debt?
Its called Hurricane Sarah and the rest of us ready to take out this communist junta in DC.
Whew, I was worried it was anthropogenic.
So let’s get Bruce Willis on it. No worries.
Well i just invested in Coppertone
100 million hydrogen bombs? How can they predict this stuff?
I wonder how they could accurately forecast this far out from the event. We don’t even know what’s going to happen on our own planet from one week to the next, let alone what a star is going to do in the way of ‘weather’.
Did these fools ever read the story about the boy that cried wolf?
If it is so, then we need to have Prince, or whatever his name or symbol is today, to strike up the music just one more time.
NASA is more concerned with championing Islam these days.
No-It’s when a bunch of American ex military types remember their training against terrorists and go into action.
Never mind the fact that all of those history books are full of the detials of the 1921 event!?
Who makes up all this crap?
Cause anything the sun does is equal to “100 million hydrogen bombs” plus it sounds really dire.
Wanna buy some Gold?
And lefties are wondering
“how can we use this to advance our agenda?”
