Earth Could Face 'Internet Apocalypse' Due to 'Cannibal Solar Storms', Scientists Warn

The phenomena named by the scientists "space weather" can affect Earth in a variety of ways: from creating fascinating light shows like auroral displays, to actually causing damage to satellite infrastructure.

Earth can brace itself for solar storms "cannibalising" one another to hit the planet in the upcoming four years, scientists have estimated.

"The last several years really we've had very little activity, as is the case during solar minimum, but now we're ramping up and ramping up quite fast into the next solar cycle maximum, which we expect in 2025", Bill Murtagh, a programme coordinator at the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), told Space.
