Space weather forecasters from the National Weather Service warned of a coronal mass ejection (CME) from the Sun that will affect Earth until late Friday. It initially resulted in a mild geomagnetic storm when it first hit, causing no problems, but today it could become more intense, experts have warned. This could result in electric and magnetic interference from solar particles that affect power grids, GPS, radio communications and satellites’ in orbit around the Earth. Future Media News spoke to Dr. Riaan Steenkamp, the Head of Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Namibia, who explained that the CME does not pose direct threat to human life but could also result in the aurora borealis becoming visible at lower latitudes.
