Show Notes

In 1859 the planet was struck by a concentrated blast of charged particles from our Sun.  It affected our world like a giant EMP.  It became known as the Carrington Event.  I sat down with Professor Douglas Gobeille of the University of Rhode Island to find out more about this phenomenon.  A noted Physicist, Prof. Gobeille helped shed some light into this.  How exactly did this occur?  How did it affect us back then?  And most importantly, could it happen again and how would it affect our world today if it did?
