A ‘Mind-Bogglingly Gorgeous’ Solar Eruption
A new video from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory shows a “massive filament” eruption on the sun that occurred last Friday. As Britain’s The Register says, it is “mind-bogglingly gorgeous.”
The eruption apparently stretched out a “half million miles into space,” The Register adds. Fortunately, the sun is about 93 million miles from us. And, says NASA, the eruption “did not travel directly toward Earth,” though it did give a “glancing blow” to the planet’s “magnetic environment” on Monday. (The Two-Way : NPR)

This is also making the Northern Lights look even cooler.

Roving Curiosity: Why NASA’s Jaw Dropping Mars Mission Is Worth Every Penny

This argument occurs, year after year, at dinner parties and in Congress alike. Every time, someone asks the question: why are we paying for NASA?

"And the Curiosity rover? Per capita, it cost each American seven dollars. The war in Iraq, by comparison, will cost each of us around $12,000."
