Solar wind flowing from this southern coronal hole should reach Earth on December 16th-17th, 2012.
Mr. Lee Sung-yoon, professor at Tufts University’s Fletcher School in Medford, Mass., doubts if even China can stop North Korea from pressing ahead with its missile and nuclear programs.
“North Korea has never caved into Chinese pressure,” he says.
“Watch out,” he advises, "for a follow-up provocation soon - in the next day or two" in the run-up to the first anniversary on Dec. 17th of the death of leader Kim Jong-il and South Korea’s presidential election two days later.
