As if!” Ok fine, let me bring an extra flare gun in case something does happen. Let’s get going!” It was the 10th of December, 1606 when John Lorell and his close friend, Thomas Locke, boarded the Discovery, the smallest of the three ships sailing to create the first successful colony in North America. The two watched the harbor in London slowly shrink into nothingness as they day-dreamt about how wondrous this new colony would be once they got there.

There is an eerie connection between the Sun and our planet’s atmosphere that can sometimes cause the sky to unexpectedly glow with shades of red, yellow, purple and green; an atmospheric phenomenon called the northern lights or Aurora Borealis. The Sun is constantly spraying the solar system with millions of tons of charged particles each minute. The stream of charged particles from the Sun, or solar wind,…

    On September 6, the sun let its presence be felt by unleashing two massive solar flares. The first eruption, classified as an X2.2 flare, the strongest since 2008, occurred at 5:10 a.m. ET. Shortly after, at 8:02 a.m ET, the star spewed out a bigger, and more dramatic, X9.3 flare — the strongest on record since December 2006. Solar flares, or storms, beginning with an explosion usually above a sunspot, the area where strong magnetic fields poke through the sun's surface. When these spots become…

    The medium sized ‘M-class’ (Mid-sized solar flare) solar flares can release enough charge particles to strip electrons from the earth’s ionosphere blocking communications signals to and from the satellites. The ionosphere also begins bouncing off the particles and waves back into space colliding with the satellites communication waves and momentarily interrupting signals between the satellites and earth. When a large ‘X-class’ (largest of all solar flares) solar flare occurs it carries enough…

    On the photosphere of the Sun it can be observed groups of dark spots. These dark spots are called sunspots and are temporarily, during from a few days to a few months. Sunspots are observed as dark compared to the surrounding areas because of the low temperature compared to the rest of the photosphere. The reduced temperature at the sunspots is due to high magnetic fields that counteract the convection preventing hotter material to reach the surface.\par The sunspots can be seen with the naked…

    harboring negative emotions and having problems with their comrades [3]. Frank and Leo were arguing about something that was resolved months ago. Just imagine what it would be like if we came across a problem that needed to be solved immediately. It is a common misconception that space is empty. It does appear to be a vast vacuum with nothing happening in most of it. Even though we are millions of miles away from the nearest object, there are still particles around. Our spacecraft has been…

    thunderous applause in the main cabin. “It will be useful to understand more about Gnaritus’ three suns for your daily lives. So, let me begin by summarizing the background information that we have already gone over near the beginning of this lecture series. The three suns of this solar system are stars, which contain mainly hydrogen gasses with a lesser amount of helium. Due to the intense force of gravity, the proximity of the hydrogen atoms in the center of these suns results in their…
