To live in fear, Or just Live

nationalpost:

Two real things from outer space that could devastate the planet, and one right here on Earth
In the past few months, a pair of existential threats to life have appeared from outer space, and one here on Earth. The National Post rounds them up:

SOLAR MEGA FLARE COULD ENGULF THE PLANET
A new paper published in Space Weather, predicts that there is a 1 in 8 chance that the Earth will be blasted by a giant mega flare from the sun before 2020.

While such an event likely wouldn’t fry all life on Earth, as implied by the movie Knowing, the flare could possibly disrupt electrical and radio systems and could, in fact, be strong enough that power stations and the entire electrical grid could be shut down, or worse, permanently destroyed.
