    Sun emits huge solar flare, burst of plasma

    According to this article, yesterday "the sun produced its biggest solar flare so far this year, a huge blast that caused temporary radio blackouts throughout the Pacific."


    In theory, what type and magnitude of a solar flare would be necessary to disable GPS?   How common are such solar flares?  In other words, what is the real risk to GPS?
