A new study, led by researchers at Sweden's Lund University, provides evidence, found in samples gathered from deep inside Greenland ice, that suggests Earth was hit with a massive solar storm in 660BC. The researchers add that if a solar storm of that intensity were to hit Earth today, it could have severe effects on our high tech society.
