Surya Namaskaar: An Indian space mission to gather information on the Sun. Could This Make Possible Mitigation of Future Coronal Mass Ejections?

"On Saturday, September 2, an Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) spacecraft will commence a 1.5 million km trek to beam home a humongous amount of details on the Sun’s activities.

Aditya L-1 (Aditya is Sanskrit for the Sun), with seven scientific payloads, will cruise for four months to reach the so-called Lagrangian point (L1) – named after the Italian astronomer and mathematician Joseph Louis Lagrange – about 1% of the distance between the Sun and the Earth.

According to ISRO, Aditya L-1 payloads are expected to provide crucial information to understand the problems of solar phenomenon, such as the heating of the outermost layer of the Sun’s atmosphere, the corona; the ejection of magnetic field and plasma from the corona, which is technically called the coronal mass ejection (CME); solar flares and pre-flare activity, and their characteristics; space weather dynamics; the study of the propagation of particles and fields into the space between planets.

The data on such phenomena will help in diverse ways. Solar flares have an impact on the El Nino effect warming Earth's oceans, which determine global weather. Solar flares have caused blackouts in Russia, and one of the largest accompanied a CME in 1989, blacking out the entire province of Quebec, Canada, for 12 hours. The Carrington Event of 1859 was one of the strongest solar flares recorded, releasing as much energy as ten billion megatons of exploding TNT; telegraph operators at the time even felt an electric shock while typing out telegrams."

    I'm still waiting for the ' micro nova '. I don't think India's interest in CMEs will thwart off the coming, impending doom. I have forgotten, when the poles flip, is India to be the new South Pole? I need to look that up...

    but as lots of so-called scientists buy into human caused climate change, i put little faith in their ability to be honest about any data

      Agreed, assuming they are tied to the agenda of the Deep State west.
      OTOH, India is a BRICS+ country, breaking from the slavery of the USD.
      They might have more compelling reasons (like massive coal fired
      electric generating plants) to expose the fraud of 'climate change.'
