Scary! Huge Sunspot Could Mean Solar Storms For Earth!

Filed under: Tech TalkScience!Scary!

Sun Spot OMG

It DOES seem like every time someone flips out over how major a solar flare is, or anything else to do with the sun for that matter, it ends up not really being bad at all.

But when we hear how HUGE this sunspot is that's forming on the sun's surface… we tend to not take it so lightly!

The spot has a diameter of 60,000 miles and is many times that of the Earth's which is just under 8,000 miles across. It's even possible to view with home telescopes.

Don't do that, though, unless your 'scope is fitted with sun filters to prevent permanent eye damage. Duh!

A huge solar flare is being predicted because of the spot — one that will have a burst of radiation travelling at up to 5million mph right towards us.

Unfortunately something like that could cause magnetic storms, which could disrupt satellites and electricity grids.

There's also no specific timeline for this to occur. During the next two years, though, they're expecting the number of sunspots visible on the sun to reach a maximum!

Space is cray!

Two Journalists From Rupert Murdoch's The Sun Attempt Suicide.

Filed under: Legal MattersMedia MinuteSad Sad

This is incredibly, incredibly sad.

How many more lives is this mess going to ruin?

As everyone knows, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp media empire has been absolutely devastated since the phone-hacking scandal prompted more investigations into the immoral - and sometimes illegal - practices in which many staffers partook, which has led to News of the World being scrapped and the arrests of eleven current and former employees of The Sun on suspicion of bribery, and now, it appears that it has taken its toll mentally on at least two senior journalists, who have reportedly attempted suicide.

Now That NOTW Is Gone, What Will Brits Read On Sunday?

Filed under: AnglophiliaMedia Minute

notw-sun-newspaper.jpg

Perhaps … The Sun?!

We did a little digging after it was announce that News of the World was shutting down this Sunday and we think we might've found which publication will be taking it's place as the new Sunday read.

Just a few days ago, on July 5th, the domain name "thesunonsunday.co.uk" was purchased and registered. At the moment, the request is in the middle of processing, but we think this might be a signifigant clue as to what's to come in UK print NEXT weekend.

Thoughts???
