Powerful Storm just Missed Earth in 2012

NASA scientists have revealed that our planet escaped a powerful solar storm in 2012. The intensity of the collision was expected to be good enough to push modern civilization back to the 18th century. A statement posted on the US space agency website said that the solar storm on July 23, 2012, was the most powerful in 150 years.

"Thank god, the solar storm went pass by earth, otherwise a line of fire would have emerged on earth", said Daniel Baker, professor of atmospheric and space physics at the University of Colorado.
