How NASA Predicts the Doomsday on Earth 30 Minutes Faster Tech – 37 minutes ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – NASA uses artificial intelligence to predict a ‘local apocalypse’ on Earth due to raging solar storms.

A team at NASA used artificial intelligence (AI) to estimate various potential solar storm threats to Earth.


According to NASA’s calculations, humans on Earth have 30 hours to prepare before the apocalypse explodes.

According to the NASA model, 30 minutes is the difference between the speed of light and the time it takes for material ejected from the Sun to reach the Earth’s surface.

So, how big is the impact of solar storms on Earth? About 35 years ago, for example, a solar storm left the Canadian city of Quebec without power for hours.

According to Science Alert, An even more powerful phenomenon occurred in Carrington, England – which is famous as the training ground for the Manchester United football club – about 150 years ago. If the events at Carrington had occurred in the modern era, electricity and communications infrastructure could have been destroyed.

The dangers of solar flares have long been known by scientists. They used as a reference the impact of solar flares on other planets and made observations using various satellites such as ACE, Wind, IMP-8, and Geotail.

However, with AI, we can predict what would happen if a solar flare directly hit Earth.

Apart from estimating the time it takes for a solar flare to hit Earth, NASA researchers also prepared predictions of the impact that solar material would have on Earth’s inhabitants.

The model name used by NASA researchers is quite cool, DAGGER which means dagger. Current technology makes predictions faster, so you can predict the direction and severity of the impact of a solar storm in just a matter of seconds. AI is also capable of making new predictions every minute.

Previous algorithms, due to limited computing power, took a very long time. It was so long that predictions were in vain because the solar flare had already hit Earth.

DAGGER is also quite “powerful” because it is able to predict locations on Earth that will be directly affected by solar storms.

The prediction speed and much greater data processing capabilities make DAGGER promising to be applied as an early warning system for the impact of solar storms.

Now, communications and power infrastructure companies have several years to integrate DAGGER into their systems by 2025. In 2025, solar activity is expected to reach its peak. Even though it’s not as important as a tornado or tsunami siren, at least DAGGER can save a city from total darkness.
