A recent study determined that a solar storm 46 years ago was the cause of an unusual occurrence off the coast of Vietnam.

Mines located underwater that mysteriously detonated in 1972 seemingly without cause. The denotation is now linked to solar flare that happened at the same time.

When the solar flare reached Earth's magnetosphere, it disrupted the mines setting them off.

Solar storms are still issues today. A large solar storm could disrupt communication, satellites, and navigation.
