That was just after we moved here.

The Day The Sun Brought Darkness

About 30 years ago, on March 13, 1989, the whole province of Quebec, Canada, suffered a blackout that by now has reached legendary proportions among astronomers and electrical engineers. Still, what made it reach this status wasn’t its proportions, but the fact that it was caused by the sun, or a solar storm to be more exact.

Three days earlier, astronomers noticed a powerful explosion on the sun, and just a few minutes after that, the Sun’s magnetic forces had already released a cloud of gas worth more than a billion tons. The cloud headed straight for Earth’s direction and at about 1.000.000 miles/hour, it went straight for us. It even jammed some radio frequencies, which most of Europe thought was the work of Russians, but they soon found out the true cause.

Neat photograph of the pilot among the aurora. I haven't had the oppertunity to see the aurora. I read it sometimes comes to lover latitudes. That's probably a good because I understandin middle lattitudes can upset the power grid.

Weird.

Dark Matter Goes Missing in Oddball Galaxy

Galaxies and dark matter go together like peanut butter and jelly. You typically don't find one without the other.

Therefore, researchers were surprised when they uncovered a galaxy that is missing most, if not all, of its dark matter. An invisible substance, dark matter is the underlying scaffolding upon which galaxies are built. It's the glue that holds the visible matter in galaxies — stars and gas — together.

"We thought that every galaxy had dark matter and that dark matter is how a galaxy begins," said Pieter van Dokkum of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, lead researcher of the Hubble observations. "This invisible, mysterious substance is the most dominant aspect of any galaxy. So finding a galaxy without it is unexpected. It challenges the standard ideas of how we think galaxies work, and it shows that dark matter is real: it has its own separate existence apart from other components of galaxies. This result also suggests that there may be more than one way to form a galaxy.

This U-2 Spy Plane Pilot Photographed the Northern Lights Up Close and It's Breathtaking

 Want to see what the Northern Lights, one of nature most beautiful phenomena, look like up close? Ross Franquemont can show you. A U-2 spy plane pilot by day and a photographer by night, Franquemont recently had the privilege of photographing the Aurora Borealis from his cockpit at 70,000 feet.

More so when you do not properly know what to expect in an environment that you can only theorise about and make very well educated guesses at. 
He was bloody lucky after all those gremlins striking the mission.

First time for anything major like that is always dangerous.

50 Years Ago, The First Spacewalk Nearly Ended In Tragedy

On March 18, 1965, Alexey Leonov stepped outside the thin metal shell of Voskhod-2 to float in the harsh void of space. For 12 minutes and 9 seconds, Leonov opened the doors on an entirely new branch of exploration as the first spacewalker. It was nearly a disaster.
