Episode 19: The Northern Lights with Nathan Lowell
« on: July 14, 2012, 12:54:49 PM »
I'm going to release this a day or so early because a great big coronal mass ejection has been barfed out towards us, and in the next night or two we can expect some northern lights. So I figured that we'd do well to release this early!

Okay! Listen to this episode HERE.



It's an episode on northern lights.
the author is nathan lowell .
If you listen past the end you'll hear a fun discussion where he tells us about his latest novel series.


I found a nice photo of the northern lights:

you can really see how the colours are stratified.

I didn't get to see any of the fun, but I just left a link in the comments to a beautiful video that shows the blue, green, and red layers from the vantage point of the ISS. Thought I'd come leave it here, too.

Thanks again for a great time. Look forward to coming back.

Great episode as always.
I'm nostalgic about childhood days waiting in a doctor's office now. Is that weird?

Also I love the lightning flashes in that video! Very cool.

what? because you aren't playing with one of those wire bead thingies?

...
you know they have them in dentist offices too, eh?!

and you don't even need a reason to go to the dentist.

My dentist doesn't have one in the waiting room :( If they did I'd play with it no matter how many weird looks I got. You only get to do it 2-3 times a year!

i haven't been to the dentist in a long time :(

you should buy one at a garage sale,
and drop it off in the dentist office next time you go.

in fact, you should get a little gold plate etched with some meaningful sounding dedication, and stick it to the toy.
