British Geophysics, representing the University of Reading, said that the year 2050 will have to approach the minimum of solar activity. According to scientists, this phenomenon is dangerous for electronic equipment in the world, and for the inhabitants of the planet.

It may be most noticeable for three centuries.

Solar activity varies in accordance with a predictable cycles, the duration of each of which is about eleven years old. Now it is reduced, the last maximum was recorded in 2014, and the next is expected to be at least 2019-2020 years. However, according to scientists, in the middle of the century there will be quite unusual - solar activity has a chance to become a minimum of three centuries. This can be important, in particular, because in this time of humanity not only moved far forward on the path of progress, but in many ways became the fruits of this progress depend.

One of the most "harmless" effects of reduced solar activity will be the fact that the aurora would indeed be possible to see only at the poles - in normal circumstances, a phenomenon rarely seen in other latitudes, but in the middle of the century solar winds that can create them, will be much less. However, other problems may be more unpleasant.

At first glance it may seem that low solar activity the world has to go only to "the common good" - in this period is less than the solar storms that negatively affect both the electronics and the people. However, scientists are paying attention to the important "gotcha": heliosphere, the impact of which is particularly strong in periods of increased solar activity plays a role in the impact of negative external protection earth. The first means that the solar minimum to make the planet more vulnerable to the harmful cosmic radiation. In the second, the researchers argue that a few, but still possible solar flares at this time will cause greater problems than usual, up to the probable collapse of electrical systems.

Scientific work, dedicated to the new study, published in the journal Scientific Reports.
