The Universe is Hostile to Computers

Tiny particles from distant galaxies have caused plane accidents, election interference and game glitches.

The video below starts with a great introduction:

“A plane plummets out of the sky, a speed runner inexplicably jumps to a higher platform, and an election recount is triggered. All because of the same invisible phenomenom that permeates the universe.”

Great video from Veritasium!

It explains in a very easy to understand manner the impact cosmic rays can have on computer processing, otherwise perceived as random, rare and inexplicable bugs.
