The natural world. Looking pretty for 3.5b years.

Launching in Space Weather

Author: Guest Writer/Tuesday, February 21, 2012/Categories: Uncategorized

This month, NASA researchers launched a rocket into an aurora in northern Alaska in an attempt to understand these amazing atmospheric displays better. According to the lead scientist from Cornell: "We're investigating ‘space weather’ that is caused by charged particles from the sun interacting with the Earth’s magnetic field.”

Whatever it is called, a fish-eye image taken during the launch is certainly impressive.
