Solar storm disrupts spacecraft

Posted on Tuesday, December 19 2006 @ 04:10:14 CET by

A heavy solar storm caused some problems:
An energetic storm which erupted on the Sun has caused disruption to satellites and may have caused a glitch on the International Space Station (ISS). The solar flare interrupted signals in space and forced mission controllers to shut systems down to avoid damage to spacecraft orbiting Earth.

The flare set off a fast-moving stream of atomic particles towards Earth.

It may also have caused a fault in the system controlling the space station's orientation in space.
