Space weather

Different types of space weather can effect different technologies at Earth.

Solar flares can produce strong x-rays that degrade or block high-frequency (HF) radio waves used for radio communication during events known as Radio Blackout Storms. Solar Energetic Particles (energetic protons) can penetrate satellite electronics and cause electrical failure. These energetic particles also block radio communications at high latitudes during Solar Radiation Storms.
