Meet the Solar Flare Alert! Developer

Why was Solar Flare Alert! created?

After noticing there was no plug-in or extension for Firefox that would notify people in real time of the latest solar flares, I decided to create Solar Flare Alert!. With the peak of the solar cycle coming up at the end of this year and into 2013, and warnings from NASA about possible huge solar flares causing untold amount of damage to our satellites and power grid, I thought it would be a great tool to have to get as much advanced warning as possible in case a power X flare heads our way.

What's next for Solar Flare Alert!

There are already a ton of features included in the full version which you can get for donating as little as $1.99. In the future I plan on adding real-time videos as well as a complete solar cycle history so that current data can be compared to the historical record.
