Humans are not perfect though the research of the sun should be. In the past ten years a number of surprises have been witnessed by this planet's scientists. The 2012 near miss of a major CME which would have caused serious problems for the denizens of earth, was one of several bullets dodged by humankind.
Surprises are not good in this fashion. The reality is that at any time a "surprise" could alter this race due to a cosmic disaster. The geological and cosmic history of this planet seems to be rather quiet these eight thousand years. My opinion is that we are due to experience a cosmic upheaval at any time and it will be a surprise.
To think a tiny speck of an iron/nickel object a mere six miles in diameter impacted earth sixty-five million years ago and changed it forever. It's what we haven't identified yet that can be very close in reality. Surprise.
