Sun is indeed getting active with dangerous discharges to satellites and senstive technology, but this also taken out of context. This is the well known 11-year solar cycle (in fact, we've been working our butts off to get our new radio telescope ready before the maximum hits, next year or so, because our telescope goes blind for a few years then). After that maximum it will subside again until 11 years later.
Really? That's fascinating Nic. What do you do in the years between, just not watch or use another method??
Probably off topic by the way, so feel free to just mail me xxx
Fixing the holes in the too hastily build software, and designing/building other telecopes. This one is just the precursor to a much larger one that we are co-creating.
And we still have the old one, you know, the one where you pushed those buttons in the control room once.
