Did you lose 4G? NASA warns El Financiero that solar storms can affect communication signals and GPS

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts high chances Geomagnetic or solar storms for Tuesday, July 13, when the Earth enters a fast-moving current of the solar wind.

According to NASA, this phenomenon occurs when a large-scale magnetic explosion accelerates charged particles in the solar atmosphere to very high speeds.

When they reach Earth, fast-moving protons penetrate the magnetosphere that protects Earth from low-energy charged particles. Once in the magnetosphere, the particles are guided by magnetic field lines and enter the atmosphere near the north and south poles.”

Although the space agency warns that radiation cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere and physically affect humans, it is severe enough to disturb The atmosphere is in the layer where communications and GPS signals are transmitted.

Similarly, the Space Weather Prediction Center warns that during the heaviest solar radiation storms, passengers and crew of aircraft flying at high altitudes at high latitudes may be exposed to radiation hazard.

The space agency explained that this phenomenon stems from solar flare It was emitted on July 3, when the radiation peaked at 10:29 a.m. with intense solar flares.
