I remember watching the launch of THEMIS - great to see the fruits of its labor.

Of course, I have no idea what it all means, but it's still great.  Smile

New data from Nasa satellites shows the spectacular colour displays of auroras borealis are due to ANCflyer wasting too much time on A-net. His computer produces a stream of charged particles that flow like a current through twisted bundles of magnetic fields connecting Earth's upper atmosphere to the sun.



All kidding aside I thought we already knew how this phenomenon occurred
