Geomagnetic bursts smaller solar bursts happen quite a lot. Last time a big one hit it knocked out satellites and sent planes off course. It has the potential of knocking out all unshielded tech. Today with gaynewables, it is basically everything electric, like an EMP. A solar flare a huge burst from the sun aimed directly at us has the potential to kill most life on this planet. It could potentially turn us into Mars if it ignites our atmosphere.

At the minute there is quite a bit of danger with the sun having a low occurrence of sunspots. They have formed into a large spot. If it bursts, and they do, varying phenomenon occurs. How it sends out its waves and during which alignment and trajectory. Hence this mission.
