The Solar Storm

From the Wall Street Journal online:

Delta Air Lines Inc. said Tuesday that it was rerouting some transpolar flights between Asia and the U.S. to avoid the impact of the largest solar storm in almost a decade.
The Atlanta-based carrier said some flights to Detroit from Hong Kong, Shanghai and Seoul took a more southerly routing on overnight flights, though a spokesman said planes flew faster to keep schedules intact. Tuesday departures from the U.S. were expected to follow similar routes.
The solar storm has been the topic of a great deal of interest here at the AMS meeting (see below).

  1. Thank you so much for allowing me to follow you. Its an important subject when it deals with life and death unfortunately. I feel bad for what happens with the destruction that a tornado causes in a matter of seconds for example. Thank you for your dedicated hard work in keeping us informed. God bless, sincerely Lena
