Large Solar Flare Erupts with 'Spectacular' Coronal Mass Ejection {VIDEO}

This Spring has been pretty exciting for solar activity…Following the ending of the longest ‘solar minimum’ in more than a century, our sun’s activity (solar cycle 24) picked up considerably over the course of the month of May, culminating in an impressive M-2 class (medium size) solar flare and “spectacular” coronal mass ejection (CME) on June 7.

Comet Flies into the Sun, Huge Explosion Follows {VIDEO}

That’s pretty cool, eh? The comet, apparently, did not cause the explosion, and scientists have found no “convincing physical connection between sun-grazing comets and coronal mass ejections.” However, this video sure makes it look like the comet caused the explosion.

NASA Confirms Einstein's Theory in 'Epic' Space-Time Experiment [VIDEO]

It was a truly “epic” mission; after nearly 47 years of planning, operating, monitoring and analyzing the data from a special satellite-probe known as Gravity Probe B (GP-B), NASA scientists are announcing definitive confirmation of Einstein’s famous theoretical prediction of the “warping” of space around the Earth due to its orbit and spinning motion through ‘space-time’.

Did the Impending 'Super Moon' Cause Japan's Earthquake?

astrologer has also predicted that such a close perigee would/must somehow perturb the earth’s (tectonic) integrity so much that it will trigger major earthquakes and even volcanoes (not simply severe storms). Although he is not clear on the exact lunar-geo-mechanisms that would produce these quakes, never-the-less this lunar-induced disaster scenario quickly set the Web abuzz with yet another wave of doom-and-gloom “apocalypticism.”

Timing is everything.

(Updated) Ancient Alien Bacteria Discovered in Meteorites?

NASA astrobiologist Richard Hoover, claims to have found ancient bacteria fossils in a rare class of meteorite — called CI1 carbonaceous chondrites — and will surely set the astrophysics/cosmology community (and the world) abuzz with excitement and controversy.
