2012 - Apocalypse?

MANY predictions say 2012 was the year of the Hour. The theory of the universe destruction Maya people have been popularized through film 2012 film of 2009 so that it won a global collection of U.S. $ 769 million (RM2.3 billion). Nostradamus, the famous French seer was named 2012 as the year of the destruction of the planets, while the astrologer says Chang Dynasty China from major disasters will occur this year. Therefore, when scientists expect the sun storm phenomenon occurred in mid-2012 to 2013, Resurrection myth that proclaimed before this seemed more convenient. In the knowledge astrology, the sun is the closest star to Earth is 149 million miles so far. It has a core temperature of 15 million degrees Celsius, and has formed over 5,000 million years ago.

"Storm of the sun occurs due to an increase in temperature of the sun from the normal rate. The temperature of the heat causes it to produce gas that is partly reflected back into the sun. However, some gas was hovering in space and enter the atmofera earth. This phenomenon is called the storm the sun, "said a local astronomer, Shahrin Ahmad. However, he felt the storm the sun will not destroy the earth. In fact, the incidence of the sun reach the earth storms are rare because it is blocked by the atmosphere and Earth's magnetic field. "The storm itself will be destroyed before they reach the ground. But if they penetrate the atmosphere and Earth's magnetic field to the size of two or three times more than the size of the ground, damage can occur.

"Whatever it is, it is limited to damage electrical equipment and telecommunications systems such as satellites, airplanes and the Internet," said Shahrin. He told, the effects of solar storms ever experienced on earth in 1859. Consequently, the telegraph system in the United States and European countries paralysis at all. "The event is called the Carrington Event. Even so, the incident can now be avoided with two reconnaissance satellites launched the Sun called Stereo Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) United States of America. "Both had the role of satellite data to understand and predict solar storms as early preparation if it occurs," he said. Shahrin added, there is concern that solar storms affect the structure of the possibility of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of human DNA, but he felt that the change was mainly caused by the greenhouse effect and the release of radioactive poison gas.

"Food, radioactive materials and chemicals that permeate the body can disrupt the body's system, but it has no direct relevance to the phenomenon of solar storms," ​​he said. NASA previously predicted the storm the sun will often occur during the year 2012 and 2013. This leads scientists the United States (U.S.) to assume the impact of storm damage from the sun by 2012 more devastating than Hurricane Katrina which hit the U.S. in 2005 and killed 1,800 people. "Top of the real concern is the disruption of social life depends on technology such as GPS and satellite communications," said NASA physicist, Lika Guhathakurta. Another NASA official, Michael Kaiser added, the sun cause solar storms since billions of years ago, but only in recent years, many of the issues concerned.

"Electromagnetic solar storms can affect the electricity system as well as endanger astronauts. "The increased magnetic energy in the atmosphere is expected to produce radiation that can lead to power electric generators increased dramatically," he said. She said, the last time the sun broke out was in 1859, leaving two thirds of the space turned into a red earth. Expected, the event can be seen once again with some major cities like London, Paris and New York experienced a storm cloud in 2012 or 2013. An astronomer from Indonesia, also argues that Judge L lazy, sun storm phenomena are not linked to Judgement. Another expert, Thomas Djamaluddin, said Judgement may occur five million years. "The sun will be a red giant star swallowing nearby planets, Mercury, Venus and perhaps Earth," he said.

Deputy Director General Office of the United Nations Organization (UN) in Vienna, Professor Datuk Dr. Mazlan Othman opinion, astrophysics can not determine the Day of Judgement as long as no changes in the sun. "The physicist is believed that the universe will end, but whether in 2012 or 10 million years from now or 10 billion years, it is up to the theory that we have. "In terms of physics, if the sun had run out of hydrogen, it will expand to other stars. At that time life on earth will change and the incident can be interpreted as a sign of Judgement. "This is because when the sun no more energy, man can not live and will have many natural events that can trigger the end of the world," he said.

According to Science Officer, National Space Agency (Space), Mohd. Zamri Shah Mastor, the earth can also be destroyed by the impact of objects floating in space like a comet or asteroid. "But we are fortunate because the earth has a layer of the atmosphere. Layer caused comets and asteroids that try riding the earth's atmosphere will be destroyed first. "Actually, there are 1.077 identified potential asteroid hit the earth," he said.
