A hypnotizing video released by NASA yesterday shows stunning imagery of a plasma bursting from the Sun. The solar flare was so strong that it caused radio blackouts all across the earth. Did the space agency just stumble upon the gates of Heaven?
NASA and the sun have been doing some serious bonding over the last couple days. This close-knit relationship produced some amazing results yesterday as the agency caught a roaring hot flare of plasma escaping from the wrath of the Sun’s gravitational pull. The flare then burst into distant space and the whole event was caught on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.
Apparently, the flare was so powerful that it caused radio blackouts across Earth. That still didn’t help prevent trash like Taylor Swift from bleeding through the airwaves, though. Musical opinions aside, the solar flare discovery was just the beginning of finding something more.
Sunspot May Be Astral Portals
The flare that NASA spotted came from an area they called Active Region 2529. The region had a large, dark sunspot which seemed to change shape and size. The size this spot was so massive that one could fit five Earth’s inside of it. NASA believes that understanding what drives behavior like this could help understand the Sun’s magnetic system and future space exploration. As beautiful as this solar flare was, it can most a major threat to communications. The flare released a huge wave of charged particles into space. If that ever comes our way, it has the power to generate a huge amount of electromagnetic activity that could wipe out power grids for months. That sounds like more of a product of Hell than Heaven.
The Gates of Heaven
Surely you remember everyone’s favorite 1978 documentary Gates of Heaven. The instant classic by Errol Morris focuses on the pet cemetery business and captured the hearts of millions. Well, hate to break it to your Errol, but the Gates of Heaven are not in a pet cemetery. Odds are, the Gates of Heaven will be nowhere on Earth. It could very well exist on the sun. Probably not, though, because that would be ridiculous. Or would it?
