The sun. Smooth and round and peaceful. Except when it suddenly vomits radiation and plasma in random directions. These solar flares and coronal mass ejections, or CMEs can hit earth and have serious consequences for humanity.
How exactly do they work, how bad could they be and can we prepare for them?

Science stupid Science stupid Science doesn't know. Every second the Sun releases billions ^ billion of lightning 0,1 voltage produces sunlight 1 positron + attracts 1 electron - create a voltage of 0.1 lightning Positrons + and electrons - rotate very rapidly after 46 billion years of creating the Sun ' s core. So the core of the Sun rotates very quickly like A super large electric turbine that produces super large electrical energy The Sun emits 4,1million tons of electricity per second. Sunlight emitting space moves the circle back to its original position after 8 hours, thus illuminating the Earth forever

Would a solar super storm shut down the safety systems of a nuclear reactor causing it to blow up, or would it shut down the reactor completely? I don't quite completely know how nuclear reactors work.
