The last solar flare happened last March 8, 2012.
Well, there is nothing to worry about, right? But according to scientists, it may affect how we live, especially on how we connect with each other- literally.
According to Wikipedia, Solar flare is a sudden brightening over the Sun surface and it affects all layers in the solar atmosphere. It was first observed by Richard Christopher Carrington and by Richard Hodgson. It is caused when charged particles accelerated with plasma medium.
So what should we do when this great phenomena happens again? Well, stay at your house and put some UV lotion at your skin but still, we cannot guarantee this kind of advice. Or maybe, pray- pray hard.
