    Bad news for GPS: Sun releases three powerful flares in two days

    Cameras used by scientists at NASA have captured images of “significant” solar flares emitting from the sun this week.

    On Wednesday, NASA reported, a third solar “X-class” flare was recorded in a span of just two days.

    The flares — short-lived but incredibly powerful bursts of radiation that bring goodies from the sun like gases, plasma and other matters in the solar system — are not entirely unusual. At least two of this week’s events have been larger than normal, though, and may interfere with high-frequency radio communications and GPS signals million miles away, according to NASA.
