Sun sneezes and…

POSTED BY: DIMITRA ATRI
 
Living near a star has its benefits but one has to face consequences too. Last week we witnessed a M9 class solar flare and an intense Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) hitting the Earth. CMEs are large volumes of charged particles ejected from the Sun’s Corona. Interaction of these charged particles with the atmosphere gives rise to spectacular auroras which can now be found floating around on youtube. Solar Storm in the Earth’s atmosphere The strongest such event in recorded history....

If you’re on the market, check it out. 1… I’m on a boat! Well, I’m not… but colleague and science communicator extraordinaire, Julia DeMarines, is. Specifically, she’s on the Atlantis, which is....
