This was a big solar storm, the biggest one for years and that will affect satellites; it will cause some satellite computers to reboot, it will cause some communications difficulties in northern latitudes, but it's not big enough to cause problems to sat-nav and things like that. - Dr David Whitehouse, astronomer (source)They had advised that our astronauts should protect themselves from the solar storm in space, because the storm rays can be harmful to humans and die of solar radiation, when I heard of this notes and advised from scientist, I started to imagine that the comic book characters from the Fantastic Four experienced the same thing, but instead of solar storm they experienced a cosmic ray exposure after an experiment gone wrong in space.
Scientists have been expecting solar eruptions to become more intense as the sun enters a more active phase of its 11-year cycle, with an expected peak in 2013. - sourceThis is to show that our sun is the good and the bad for Earth, too much sun is bad as they say, but we should be ready and expect a much stronger solar storm wave in the future. I just hope it is not similar to that solar flare and storm in the sci fi drama movie "The Knowing" starring Nicolas Cage, that the makers of the movie theorize that a massive solar storm can kill all living things in Earth in one big solar storm blast. Watch that movie and understand on how it will end, kinda scary and I hope aliens from Kepler planet saves us hahahah.
The idea behind the solar flare theory stems from the fact that the Sun will be reaching the peak of its current solar cycle in 2012. Solar cycles are 11 years in length and scientists seem to think the current solar cycle will be one of the worst seen by mankind at its peak. Evidence of this is a recent solar flare in January 20 of 2005 which released the highest concentration of protons ever directly measured according to "A New Kind of Solar Storm" - source
