NMSU researchers investigate phenomenon crucial for solar flare production

Solar flares are large storms on the sun that can affect us here on Earth, interfering with cell phone service, radio and GPS navigation systems. Unlike other space weather events, radiation from solar flares travels at the speed of light. We get no warning that they’re coming. In a study published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters in April, New Mexico State University astronomers’ research about an electromagnetic phenomenon called a “current sheet,” provides support for the computer models that may eventually be used to predict solar flares before our communications can be disrupted.
