NASA scientists have gone public today with a statement, explaining the sudden increase in solar activity that has dominated headlines in recent weeks. According to researchers, a filament on the suns surface has exploded, causing a string of solar flares. Scientists insist that the high-energy plasma released by the explosions will likely dissipate before reaching the Earth’s atmosphere. This explanation, however, does not sit well with some who cite their store-bought Mayan calendars as proof that this is most certainly the end of days.
