Geomagnetic storms

How to manage the risk of wide range electronics outage?

YAML [edit]

With the ease and convenience of integrating hardware with computers, we tend to use computers and electronics for our critical systems.

However, there are many things that can happen to electronics -- from global electromagnetic storms (like the 1859 solar storm) to computer viruses.

One such mishap causing an outage of all electronics in a geographical region could potentially cause extremely large damage. Ideas how to avoid or mitigate, and risk analysis in the comments are welcome.

这个视频讲到太阳风暴可能造成大范围停电。预防的方法是观测CME、预报太阳风暴,现在有绕太阳的人造卫星,有空间天气预报网站,应该可以做到准确预报。然后在太阳风暴到来的时候主动关电。

那么还有什么其他原因造成大范围的停电呢?


This definitely needs to be prepared for. Enough of not preparing for a pandemic.
