Growing Sunspot Faces Earth, Second-Strongest Solar Flare Possible

A massive sunspot that has grown twice its size in just 24 hours is now facing Earth and may produce a solar flare. Sunspots are dark spots on the surface of the sun that are linked to powerful radiation bursts. Because they are cooler than other areas of the sun’s surface, they appear dark. Because … Read more

Solar Winds Traveling at Millions of Miles Per Hour Could Hit Earth in the Coming Hours

Solar winds traveling in space at the speed of millions of miles per hour may hit Earth in the coming hours, placing both satellites and power grids at risk. The solar outburst came as a result of a solar storm from the Sun recently, highlighting the continued increased activity within the current Solar Cycle 25. … Read more

Pollinator-Friendly Solar: Do it for the Bees

Pollination is required for approximately 80% of the world’s crops. Pollinator populations have declined globally in recent years as a result of habitat loss, climate change, and chemical exposure such as pesticides. Furthermore, pollinator populations are declining, posing a threat to global crop production and ecosystem health. One solution could be pollinator-friendly solar. Achieving Pollinator-Friendly … Read more
