article excerpt from:
"Space weather has been suggested as a cause or contributor to over $500 million in insurance claims in the past five years," said Chris Kunstadter, of U.S. Aviation Underwriters Inc., in New York City, a major satellite insurer. "There have been roughly a half-billion dollars worth of insured satellite losses where solar activity may have been a contributing factor," and only about 20 percent of all satellites are insured.
