London, Sep 22: Power grids may crash, communication systems may collapse and Internet may shut down in 2013 as scientists warned that a huge solar flare is due to burst in 2013.

British Defence Secretary, Liam Fox informed that the giant explosion of energy from the Sun, a phenomenon which occurs only once every 100 years, may cause incalculable damages to the earth.

'The Sun' reported that the hostile power could cause a similar effect by exploding a nuclear weapon in space.

Fox claimed, "While we all benefit from scientific advances, so we also create vulnerabilities that can be exploited by our enemies."

"However advanced we become, the chain of our security is only as strong as its weakest link," added his statement.
