Actually Im not sure super heated plasma is considered fire... so Fox News stating the obvious and still getting it wrong.


And we as its creators don't feel ready to hear your annoyed jabber about it.

Imagine the size of the fart required to make the sun flare.

Epic.

Especially when what caused it all was some kid pulling on a finger. Zeus, being a good uncle, told a young Atlas to do so.

Fun fact: physics still works, even for the gods, so Helios probably got a little bump from the sudden fire on the sun, altering his course slightly. This may explain the Devonian mass extinction event.

A fox, by any other name, still would get the scientific facts wrong!

I wonder what Matt Wagner would think of all this?

Can someone ask him to RSVP via PM?

He's too busy writing an epic Opera I think. Or maybe another browser.

His new opera will be even LONGER than his classic "Der Ring des Nibelungen"!

I started writing a long comment, but I'll condense it.
I'm not surprised that the NASA article isn't clear
to start with. Media relations and information staff
at technical institutions seem to be generally rather
less than fluent with the subtleties of the subject
matter they are working with, and typically poorly
overseen. The researchers whose work they are translating
for a lay audience are frequently not sufficiently
interested to do a proper proofing of their work, or
may not be in position to do so; it is rather under
the control of the administration.

I've been in the habit of browsing a website sciencedaily.com,
that seems to run articles which are mostly verbatim
transcriptions of institutional news releases summarizing
research, sometimes condensed or truncated, a little
awkwardly. The articles have a huge range in quality, from
lucid to utterly muddled, and from the articles I've been
puzzled by, and sufficiently motivated to trace back to
the originating news release, most of the inconsistency
is in the original releases. I think it comes down to the
rate that new science and tech is being produced, and
the lack of resources to direct toward doing a good job
of communicating it to the public.

It's a bit of a pain; sometimes the stuff on the sciencedaily
site makes me cringe. Well, of course it doesn't help that
many of the institutions harvested for the site are not in
english speaking regions, and the sciencedaily compilers make
no effort to tighten up the english in those news releases.
But that is hardly the main cause of the problem.

Amazingly he's turned it into Classical Dub Step, and it will redefine both genres.

Feuer auf der Sonne will change everything.
