New Theory Claim 'End Of The World’ In April 2023
The end-of-the world theories have been around for a long time. According to TikTok however, this could happen on Sunday, April 23, due to a solar storm.
Can solar storms affect the Earth?
The Carrington Event of 1859 was the strongest solar storm ever measured on Earth, which led to failures in North American telegraph networks and European telegraph systems.
In 1989, the power grid in Quebec, Canada was paralyzed by a solar storm, leaving 6 million people in darkness for nine hours.
Dr. Tamitha Skov, a space weather physicist, forecasts a 10% chance of an X-class eruption causing GPS and shortwave radio disruptions.
No one can predict solar storms, so the world won't end on the date selected by this theory, but there are some potential risks.
Will The Earth Last Forever?
Scientists believe that the Sun's brightness will continue for another 5 billion years. It will gradually get, and warm the Earth more.
5 billion years is really long time away: an average human life is about 73 years, so a billion is more than 13 million human lifetimes.
