Our sun, which sits at the centre of the solar system, is the primary source of energy. Not only does it provide heat and light to sustain various forms of life on planet earth, but it also acts as the pivot point for all that is around itself.

What is a solar storm? For those who are not familiar with the term solar storm, here’s a quick explainer. A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) is popularly known as a solar storm. It is a directional ejection of a large mass of highly magnetized particles from the Sun. When the Earth is in the direct path of a solar storm, these magnetized and charged solar particles interact with the Earth’s magnetic field and produce a number of effects, which includes damaging vital parts of long-distance sea cables that make up the backbone of the Internet.
