CNN reports that “earth dodged a cosmic bullet” on September 10. We experienced the most energetic series of cosmic flares in decades, which did temporarily block high-frequency radio communication and degraded performance of the GPS network. However, the reporter points out it could have been worse, as there was not a coronal mass ejection (or CME).

Better yet, come talk to us about CMEs, single event upsets, and our solutions. Lucid Circuit will be attending the Global Venture Summit in Los Angeles, CA from September 30th through October 1st.
