Intense solar storms are caused by the sun's magnetic field becoming twisted and distorted.
These storms can have a significant impact on Earth, causing power outages, disrupting communication systems, and even posing a risk to human health.
Scientists have discovered that these storms may peak faster than previously thought, with the most intense phase lasting just a few minutes rather than hours.
This could make it more difficult to predict when these storms will occur and how severe they will be. It could also mean that the impact on Earth is more sudden and severe than anticipated.
Researchers are now working to better understand this phenomenon and develop new ways to predict and prepare for intense solar storms.
This research highlights the importance of studying space weather and its potential impact on our planet.
