Earth's atmosphere and magnetic field protect our bodies from such solar radiation,
The "biggest ever identified" solar storm, which happened 14,300 years ago, has been documented by astronomers.
A sort of material called radiocarbon that is preserved in Earth's tree rings experiences a significant increase as a result of this solar storm.
In a news release regarding the finding, the University of Leeds noted that "this newly-identified 14,300-year-old storm is, however, the largest that has ever been found - roughly twice the size of these two."
Experts have located the Nine Miyake Events using information from tree rings and ice cores, including those that took place in 993 AD and 774 AD.
The Carrington Event, the most powerful solar storm that Earth has ever directly witnessed, took place in 1859.
If NASA's Parker Solar Probe assists specialists in predicting where a powerful ejection from the sun may reach Earth, a country or locality may be better prepared to prepare (for instance, by momentarily shutting down the electricity system).
Although the Earth's atmosphere and magnetic field shield human bodies from such solar radiation, solar outbursts have the potential to cause serious or even catastrophic damage to our technology, particularly to electrical grids and communication networks.
