3 scariest things science has discovered in space and threaten the earth

The universe is full of secrets and unknown things, but some of them can create serious problems for humanity.

The conquest of space is one of the goals that humanity has set for itself over the years, this last frontier between our planet and everything else in the universe is a great unknown, full of innumerable wonders, celestial objects are so large that they boggle the imagination. and some truly catastrophic events.

Being unknown, scientists carefully studied the various events that gave birth to galaxies, as well as planets. The hypotheses are varied and increase with advances in technology, allowing for a more thorough study of certain phenomena.

Here are some of the events that marked the observations of scientists and astronomers with fire because of their characteristics, which are as special as they are terrifying.

Collision with the Andromeda galaxy

It may be 2.5 million light years from Earth, but Andromeda, The largest galaxy in our solar system is on a terrifying trajectory: It’s heading straight for our Milky Way and will collide with it one day.

However, shortly before that, it will dominate the night sky.. Fortunately, Andromeda will arrive only in 3-5 billion years.

Arrival of the mega-comet

The appearance in our solar system in 2021 of the largest comet in history is terrifying. Comet C/2014 UN271 has a diameter of 137 kilometers, an icy core 50 times larger than the previous record holder, and a mass 100,000 times that of an average comet. it is so large that it was originally classified as a minor planet.

Luckily, This monstrous snowball is expected to approach Earth no closer than 1.6 billion kilometers. when it approaches it in 2031. However, could comets be more dangerous? This is something that science cannot yet answer.

Consequences of a large solar storm

The Earth is constantly being bombarded by high-energy solar particles. Most of the time, the planet’s magnetic field reflects these solar attacks.

However, from time to time, magnetic distortions inside our star rearrange themselves and cause a solar flare.a sudden burst of light that emits an incredible amount of X-rays and energy in all directions, moving at the speed of light.

Solar Storm.  They Can Lead To A General Shutdown Of All Communications.

The result can be darkening of navigation and communication signals. Another scenario is a coronal mass ejection, a slow burner that sends magnetized particles into space.

If it goes to Earth, in a few days geomagnetic storms occur that can disrupt communications and power grids.

The most powerful geomagnetic storm in modern history, known as the Carrington event, occurred in 1859, before the advent of modern technology.

If a storm of the magnitude of Carrington erupts now, it will trigger an internet apocalypse., a shutdown that can last for months. However, the probability of such a solar storm occurring is estimated to be between 1.6% and 12% per decade.
