2012 solar storm space disaster
A recently released NASA report warns that the U.S. has forgotten the power of the sun, creating a technological society susceptible like never before to massive infrastructure damage from solar storms.

I love this snippet:
"According to a video on Space.com, a CME impacted the earth in 1998, knocking a communications satellite out of space to crash in the middle of the U.S. and disrupting nearly every pager signal in the country."

The horror!

This could be more fun than the digital switchover (assuming it ever happens).
