Scientist have warned that Britain needs to be prepared in the event of a 'solar-superstorm'.
At the risk of large scale blackouts and interference to satellites and GPS systems, they are urging the Government, to establish a new board of experts to lead a strategy to deal with such an event.
The Academy recommends that government sets up a Space Weather Board to oversee these issues across government departments.
Our message is: Don't panic, but do prepare - a solar superstorm will happen one day and we need to be ready for it.
