Did you know they just released a cool app that sends notifications to whoever you need automatically to let them know when you will get to a place on time?

Sun Sends Out Mid-Level Solar Flare



This image was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) on July 19, 2012 of an M7.7 class solar flare. The image represents light in the 131 Angstrom wavelength, which is particularly good for seeing flares, and which is typically colorized in teal. Credit: NASA/SDO

Test decodes dolphins’ math skills
Nonlinear mathematics may be behind the mammals’ ability to see through bubbles



By studying the clicks of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, researchers have figured out a way to create sonar that sees through bubbles.


Dolphins could teach humans a thing or two about finding Nemo. The aquatic mammals may pinpoint prey hidden in bubbles by using mental math....

This must be the most boring topic on the forums.


My goal is to **** at least 50 girls this year,
Drink at least 100 liter beer,
Smoke 10 or more joints,

Heliophysics Nugget: Colorful Science Sheds Light on Solar Heating

Heliophysics nuggets are a collection of early science results, new research techniques, and instrument updates that further our attempt to understand the sun and the dynamic space weather system that surrounds Earth.




Left: This image was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) on June 19, 2010, the image shows the area in the wavelength of 171 Angstroms, which has here been colorized in yellow. Credit: NASA/SDO
Right: This visualization, based on the image on the left, uses specific colors to describe which areas on the sun cooled or heated over a 12-hour period. The use of reds and yellows imply that higher temperatures dominated earlier in the time period, while lower temperatures dominated later, meaning that the area showed steady cooling over time, but any heating happened too quickly and impulsively to be measured. The image compares wavelength 211 (which shows material in the 2 million K range) to wavelength 171 (which shows material about ten times cooler). Credit: NASA/Viall

You should write your thought on it, otherwise you're just copying & pasting shit on the forums.
