BIT FLIPS are a COMMON thing in the universe 😀 so EEC RAM ACTUALLY MAKES SENSE 😀

“Studies by IBM in the 1990s suggest that computers typically experience about one cosmic-ray-induced error per 256 megabytes of RAM per month”[15]

As chip (CPU transistors and RAM) density increases, the likelyhood goes up: ” 1 to 5 bit errors per hour for 8GB of RAM” (src)

“So, if the program has large dataset (several GB), or has high memory reading or writing rate (GB/s or more), and it runs for several hours, then we can expect up to several silent bit flips on desktop hardware” (src)

The sun is ONE source of cosmic radiation but also a SHIELD against other cosmic radiation (Heliosphere)
