This fiction story is based on some terrifying facts! The sun is a star and like all stars, is made up of incredibly hot, swirling gases. Sometimes, these gases are whipped up into huge solar storms. These storms release enormous bursts of energy from the sun’s surface. With only eight minutes before an energy burst hits the surface of the earth, there’s no warning! And although they don’t know it, the staff of a power station are about to be hit by the effects of a solar storm. Engineer Hayley Carlotta is about to be caught right in the middle of it, and her ordinary day is turned into one of the worst days of her life.
