Hello /sci/ I'm visiting over from /k/ where the topic of EMPs arose specifically one caused by a solar flare. Now I'm aware that a solar flare would throw out one hell of a lot of highly charged EM radiation. I'm just curious as to how a person could protect their home from those sorts of levels (which I'm guessing would be greater than any man made EMP).A few primary questions are:>If a home is self sufficient I.e. producing it's own electricity how would you best protect things like the solar panels or wind turbines?>Would it be possible to build a faraday cage into the house? Such as building it into the basement?>Would individual electronic devices need to be protected or would things like radios simply need to be unplugged? Does same apply to devices that are not plugged in?>How much potential damage could a solar flare EMP do to the planet considering the small one in the 1800 caused substantial and we were less dependant on tech then?
