Internet BLackout Due To A Solar Storm
A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) also known as Solar Strom, is a directional ejection of a large mass of highly magnetized particles from the sun. When Earth is in the direct pathway of a solar storm these magnetized and charged solar particles will interact with Earth’s magnetic field and produce several effects. Wich includes damaging the long-distance cables, which are basically the backbone of today’s internet.

SPECULAR SPECTACULAR: DURING ITS MISSION, OUR CASSINI SPACECRAFT CAPTURED THE SUN GLINTING OFF OF TITAN'S NORTH POLAR SEAS, SEEN IN THIS NEAR-INFRARED, COLOR MOSAIC FROM AUGUST 21, 2014. THE SUNGLINT, ALSO CALLED A SPECULAR REFLECTION, IS THE BRIGHT AREA NEAR THE 11 O'CLOCK POSITION AT UPPER LEFT. THIS MIRROR-LIKE REFLECTION, KNOWN AS THE SPECULAR POINT, IS IN THE SOUTH OF TITAN'S LARGEST SEA, KRAKEN MARE, JUST NORTH OF AN ISLAND ARCHIPELAGO SEPARATING TWO SEPARATE PARTS OF THE SEA. THE SOUTHERN
The Ring Nebula (Messier 57)
Hubble image of the Ring Nebula (Messier 57) This image shows the dramatic shape and colour of the Ring Nebula, otherwise known as Messier 57. From Earth's perspective, the nebula looks like a simple elliptical shape with a shaggy boundary. However, observations combining existing ground-based data with NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope data showed that the nebula is shaped like a distorted doughnut. This doughnut has a rugby-ball-shaped region of lower-density material slotted into in its centra
