While flares have been studied for over 150 years, CMEs were first conclusively detected in 1971. They are usually associated with flares, and are thought to be generated when loops of magnetic field ‘cut loose’ by a magnetic reconnection, and the filament material within them, expand violently outwards. CMEs form billowing clouds of relatively dense material within the general ‘solar wind’ of particles flowing out from the Sun, but compared to radiation storms they travel at comparatively sedate speeds of a few hundred kilometres per second.
Well once again, the key is good design – if the engineers are aware of it, they can deal with it, and there’s a lot of good work already being done. For instance, aircraft are already very robust to such issues, and even cars are designed with this in mind – you can hardly warn people not to drive their cars today because there might be a solar radiation storm. What about the risk of another Québec-style incident? Well that’s a very different effect, and that comes from the geomagnetic storms.
Messenger’s original one-year mission ended, but NASA has extended it until March 2013. The European Space Agency and the Japanese Space Agency are planning a joint mission called BepiColombo, to put a spacecraft in Mercury’s orbit in 2015. It initially included what would have been the first lander on the planet’s surface, but that part of the mission was cancelled due to its high cost. Mariner 10 Mariner 10 departed Earth on 3 November 1973, making one flyby of Venus and three of Mercury before ceasing to transmit on 24 March 1975.
