Thursday, August 1, 2019

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. At the time researchers had noticed an area on the east limb of the sun that was more active than ususal. It was producing solar flares and coronal mass ejections that were so intense, that they reached earth's atmosphere in 14.6 hours, 7 times faster than norm.
