I just watched the program myself. Honestly I am not sure what to think.
They were coming at it from a scientific standpoint and not exactly from a 'moon landing' standpoint, if you know what I mean.
They say it is extremely hard to predict these flares, but we have humans in space almost all the time, so thats what was in my mind as I was watching as well.
I'm going to check out some more research and get back to you - and thanks for the link btw~
