    If we just shoot Evo into space, then the sun part will follow her and leave us alone... Just sayin'.

    that's gotta be the most worst scientific misinformation, from some one who should know what he's talking about, that I have ever heard!!!!

    Its a freaking coronal hole!! has nothing to do with a mass of stuff being ejected from that area

    makes me wanna swear long and hard when I hear crap like that

    Hey, it's FOX !!! Their science reporting is on a par with their political reporting. What would you expect?

    Yea what the hell, and he still says "we don't really know why this happens", like he has any idea of what he's talking about... Where the hell does Fox News get these people?

    Exactly. Coronal holes are the primary source of the fast solar wind. We had some rather nice aurora the past few days thanks to this large and persistent coronal hole, plus a few minor satellite disturbances.

    I don't know how I missed this.

    I died laughing when he said "this whole chunk blew off and is headed right for us."

    Epic.
