Seeker, an American digital media network and content publisher, interviewed HAO's space scientist, Delores Knipp, in July 2019. The presentation is titled "How Earth's Magnetic Field Twists and Buckles During Solar Storms." Dr. Knipp uncovered a war mystery that is connected to a major solor storm event in July 1972.
