Thinking about Space




This video is from about 6 months ago showing a solar flare on the sun.  To understand just how enormous and amazing this video is the Earth would be about half a cm (about a quarter of an inch).  The molten materials and gases shoot off about 100 times the diameter of the Earth in about a minute before the gavity of the sun pulls most of the material from the flare back into itself.  Right now Nasa and the US media is starting and will continue to run with the story that these flares will bring about the end of the world in the next year and a half.  So you will be hearing a lot more about this and contrary to the way it is being presented this video should inspire awe not fear.

These videos show a theory that the Earth (as well as other planets) are possibly expanding.  True or not it is an interesting idea.



The shape of the Earth without the oceans.



I am currently thinking about doing an illustration that will have to do with time and space.
