It has been a while since a credible “end of the world” theory emerged from the internet.

This most recent prophecy of the end of the world appears to have gained traction on, of course, TikTok.

According to, “a new conspiracy theory claiming that some sort of apocalypse will occur this Sunday, April 23rd, has been gaining traction, particularly among Spanish-language users, with the account @lascapsulasdeltiempo serving as its primary source.”

Let’s investigate.

This theory predicts that an intense solar storm will occur on Sunday, April 23, 2023.

Why is this undesirable?

As we reported in April of 2021, Dr. Mark Morris, an astronomy professor at UCLA, explained that the sun has a high probability of causing the catastrophe.

There is every reason to believe that our sun will become a red behemoth in approximately five billion years, as Morris explained.

“As it continues to grow, it will eventually become what is known as an asymptotic giant branch star – a star with a radius just smaller than the distance between the sun and Earth – one astronomical unit in size. When the red giant sun becomes an asymptotic giant branch star, the Earth will literally graze its surface.

However, this is not what the latest theory suggests. According to the allegation, a massive solar flare could cause significant technological disruptions.

Combined with a solar storm, this could have devastating effects on electrical grids, mobile networks, and the internet.

That would be the end of the world.

The strongest solar storm in nearly six years struck Earth last month, and space weather forecasters had no idea it was coming, according to Rocket Lab had to delay a launch by 90 minutes, which was the worst incident that happened during that event. We will likely be alright.
