'Monster' Solar Storm Erupts On the Sun


The sun unleashed a powerful flare Thursday (Feb.24) that – while not the strongest solar storm ever seen – let loose a massive wave of magnetic plasma in a dazzling display.

The solar flare kicked up a huge, twisting tendril of plasma that scientists call a solar prominence. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the flare in an eye-catching video, with mission scientists calling the eruption a "monster prominence."

Human scientists also require input and occasional intervention from other humans. Does that mean they are not scientists?

Seems like a weak argument, probably indicative of a prejudice against artificial intelligence.

You may be right, but I would like to know more about what they mean when they say :"human input and occasional intervention."

But it would be very interesting. I'm sure sailors would love it. And the Army as well. Reduces the need for supply convoys, always a good thing.

Makes me wonder, if they can grow meat, could they produce a fresh milk machine?

I would think so. If they could grow meat then I figure it wouldn't be long before they could grow a teat.

When from our better selves we have too long
Been parted by the hurrying world, and droop,
Sick of its business, of its pleasures tired,
How gracious, how benign, is Solitude.
