NASA: 2012 may bring dangerous solar superstorms

• Terrence Aym
Could a 2012 magnetic superstorm generated by the sun destroy America or northern Europe's fragile technology? NASA and the European space agency say yes. Solar scientists are very concerned as they see the sun awaking from its unusually long slumber with a violence unseen for generations. That violence could be in the form of mammoth magnetic storms. Those storms hitting the Earth will be like a giant's fist slamming into the fragile electronic technology that runs the modern world. Hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis pale by comparison. Among all the countries with exposure to the solar devastation, the United States is perhaps the most susceptible.
