Chennai, Sept. 19: Could the Mayan doomsday prophets have been on to something after all?
Chennai 9月19日:畢竟瑪雅末日預言能否已意識到什麼?

After the eponymous film about the ancient Mesoamerican prediction that the world will end in 2012 scared the socks off movie-goers and had sceptics shake their heads in disbelief, leading scientists now say that something close to apocalyptic could indeed occur when the Sun rises on December 21, 2012.
在得名電影關於古代中美洲預測,世界將在2012年結束後,嚇得電影觀眾襪子飛脫,及持懷疑態度者則以不敢相信而大搖其頭,領先的科學家們現在說,有些接近世界末日的東西,可能確實會發生,當太陽在2012年十二月21日升起時。
The eminent astronomer, Prof. K. Sundara Raman, may dismiss the prophecy as a myth, but he says extremely abnormal activity on the Sun that day will result in massive solar storms. “The solar wind, powered by huge coronal mass ejections, will fry communication networks and power grids across the world,” he says.
著名的天文學家Sundara拉曼光教授,可能駁回神話的預言。但是他說,到那天在太陽上極不正常的活動,將導致大規模的太陽風暴。 “太陽風由巨大的日冕物質拋射作動力,將炒起整個世界的通信網絡和電網,”他說。
Unless some action is taken to mitigate the effect of the solar flare, Prof. Raman adds, entire cities, markets and government systems could plunge into chaos of the kind the modern world has never witnessed.
除非採取某種行動,以減輕太陽耀斑的影響,拉曼教授補充,全部城市、市場和政府系統可能陷入混亂,那種現代世界從來沒有見過的。
“The solar wind is a stream of stream of charged particles that blow out of the corona of the Sun at supersonic speeds to the outer reaches of the planetary orbits,” explains Prof. Raman, head of Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Kodaikanal.

“During violent sun storms like the one expected in December 2012, the Sun ejects a huge volume of electrified gas. It is capable of damaging power grids, communication services, satellites, spacecraft and aircraft.”

He points out that a similar phenomenon resulted in a total blackout of Quebec province in Canada for nine days in March 1989.
他指出一類似的現象,導致加拿大魁北克省在 1989年3月停電九天。
