Still image from The Universe: Magnetic Storm

It bursts from the sun with the power of ten thousand nuclear weapons... and when it hits our planet, it could create the largest disaster in recorded history. A magnetic storm from the sun could wipe out electrical power, television, radio, military communication, and nearly every piece of electronics in the Northern Hemisphere. Learn about a planet-wide "hurricane" of magnetic forces called "Solar Katrina" that could permanently scramble all 21st Century technology. What causes this magnetic superstorm and why is it so powerful? And is there anything we can do to prevent the Magnetic Storm?
