    1859 Famous Solar Storm

    Solar Superstorm

    What happened in 1859 was a combination of several events that occurred on the Sun at the same time. If they took place separately they would be somewhat notable events. But together they caused the most potent disruption of Earth's ionosphere in recorded history. "What they generated was the perfect space storm," says Bruce Tsurutani, a plasma physicist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

    coronal mass ejection

    I do this all the time. It's not that special.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Coronal Mass Ejection: an explosive burst of very hot, electrified gases with a mass that can surpass that of Mount Everest.
