    Space storm alert: 90 seconds from catastrophe

    It is midnight on 22 September 2012 and the skies above Manhattan are filled with a flickering curtain of colourful light. Few New Yorkers have seen the aurora this far south but their fascination is short-lived. Within a few seconds, electric bulbs dim and flicker, then become unusually bright for a fleeting moment. Then all the lights in the state go out. Within 90 seconds, the entire eastern half of the US is without power.

    A year later and millions of Americans are dead and the nation's infrastructure lies in tatters. The World Bank declares America a developing nation. Europe, Scandinavia, China and Japan are also struggling to recover from the same fateful event - a violent storm, 150 million kilometres away on the surface of the sun.
    An interesting futuristic scenario - one that is both exciting to the masses, and having very real implications for a world that simply can't function without it's electronics.

    For us, of course, the interest is because of the hints of things that we believe - about the end times.

    An interesting read, from NewScientist
