CNET NASA's Kepler space telescope spots 'wobbly' new planet CNET Every 66 days, Kepler 413-b rotates around a pair of red and orange dwarf stars, and even that orbit seems to wobble, NASA said, thanks to the fact that the plane of the orbit "is...
The new planet, known as Kepler-413b, has an extremely irregular orbit that seems to move up and down. It also has no surface to stand on.

This image of an M5.2-class solar flare that occurred late on Feb. 3, 2014, was captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. The solar flare can be seen as the bright flash near the center of the bright flash near the center of the sun. The image shows light in the 304 Angstrom wavelength, which is typically colorized in red.
Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however — when intense enough — they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel.This picture originally appeared at Nasa
New technology emerging in Wind Turbines. This is why Ontario (Canada) should hit the pause button. We can have renewable energy and avoid/reduce bird/bat kill numbers. Truly be environmentally friendly. Combine this with OCAS (Obstacle Collision Avoidance System) which helps reduce light pollution caused by the flashing lights atop Wind Turbines and its really becoming a win win for everyone in Ontario!
