There is no way that I know of to protect all of those satellites up in orbit.
i only watch the Science and ecucational channels.. a recent NASA documentary.
NASA is well aware of the solar flare energy problem.. most satelittes are shielded. NASA has sent Satlites out towards the Sun to warn of Solar eruptions or flares.. Astronauts will hear an alarm and get behind the shield, some satelittes can turn thier back.. Some of earth`s satellittes have survived 30- 40 years orbiting the earth. i wonder if Sputnick or Telstar are still alive.?/
