The Sun Continues To Be Uncontrolled By Us, Throws Out Another Mass Ejection

We ought to write a law or something. Put some lobbyists to work on curbing the audacity of the day star. Take a look.

A giant explosion on the Sun was captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory on November 16th, 2012. It sent a coronal mass ejection into Space but not in Earth’s direction.

Whew, that’s a relief. Or is it? I’m thinking this might start affecting our climate, and there’s not a thing we can do about it.

The horror.

Good thing the Church has an observatory. Keep an eye on that thing for us, okay?

    *sarc on*/It’s only a matter of time before our climate change OCD causes us to rethink our policies on how much solar activity we allow. Just think of the footprint caused by those coronal mass ejections…./*sarc off*

    That video was AWESOME. Things like this remind me of why I went into science in the first place. Thanks for sharing.
