The Sun will reach “solar maximum” – a particularly active period – in 2025, and our digital world is not ready. There has been a barrage of misinformation and unsubstantiated warnings from NASA after terms like “internet apocalypse” caught the attention of social media users.

The agency has not yet commented on the possibility that the 2025 solar storm will end the internet.

People started discussing what the “always online” tribe would do if such an event took place? But is it just a hype? The Post says these concerns are not entirely fiction.

There is a possibility of a strong solar storm hitting Earth – a rare event that has never occurred in the interconnected world – causing widespread internet outages. It also mentioned the Carrington Event of 1859 when telegraph lines sparked and operators were electrocuted, as well as the 1989 solar storm that knocked out the Quebec power grid.

“We’ve never experienced one of the extreme case events, and we don’t know what our infrastructure would do if it did,” Sangeetha Abdu Jyothi, a computer science professor at the University of California at Irvine, told the Post. “We do not even test for such scenarios,” she said.

It was her paper ‘Solar Superstorms: Planning for an Internet Apocalypse’ that popularized the term.

A severe solar storm could disrupt long-distance connectivity by disrupting large-scale infrastructure, such as undersea communication cables, said Ms Jyothi.

In the US alone, just one day of lost connectivity is estimated to have an economic impact of more than $11 billion due to such outages, according to the outlet.

As the US celebrated Independence Day on July 4, the Sun held its own fireworks display. NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), which orbits the Sun, captured a video of a solar storm, or coronal mass ejection (CME).
