Today on Far Future Horizons we present another exciting episode of the acclaimed documentary series “How the Universe Work”.
The Universe is a magnetic minefield, with cosmic bombs detonating everywhere. Our own Sun regularly spits out lethal and spectacular flares, capable of battering our power and communications systems here on Earth, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Far out in space, spinning star systems crackle and explode, magnetic monsters rip worlds apart, star-quakes shoot out beams of devastating energy, and galactic flamethrowers fire gamma-rays half way across the Universe.
Scientists are only now beginning to comprehend the true variety of the Universe's arsenal. As we uncover the most dangerous Megaflares in the cosmos, the question is, will we find Earth in the firing line?
