August 10, 2010 Science

I needed to change gears for a few minutes today and stumbled across these two videos: “Dr Quantum – Double Slit Experiment” and “Empathic Civilisation.”  Both are topics I have a great interest in, if not as much depth as I’d like.  Perhaps if I took embraced a polyphasic sleep cycle I could stay awake [...]

Sure enough, Nasa Space Weather delivers.  On August 2nd, they noticed a giant “coronal mass ejection.”  Yesterday, on August 3rd, they confirmed that Europe was experiencing the first hit, but thankfully with no more impact than beautiful aurorae.
