We’re Living In The Future
What else can you say when one of the headline news articles on the BBC news concerns a flare on the Sun?*
By the way, in case anyone’s concerned, I don’t really think there’s much to be worried about with this one. It might cause some aurorae and possibly make a few satellites glitch a bit, but I don’t think we’re going to wake up to widespread disruption tomorrow.
Of course, if a repeat of the Carrington Event were to happen today, that would be quite a different conclusion.
*There’s also the point that my main source for news these days is a decentralised, global, electronic computer network … which I would have regarded as downright bizarre/unlikely as recently as 1995.
