    NASA has just released stunning video of a “coronal rain,” a solar phenomenon in which hot plasma appears to rain down in great arches onto the surface of the sun. I have posted the link as opposed to the Video as you get the Video and the explanation on the web page. http://herocomplex.latimes.com/scien...o-plasma-rain/

    Felix Baumgartner's freefall to Earth
    The numbers didn't change a whole heck of a lot from the preliminary findings. Red Bull Stratos now says the maximum vertical speed was 843.6 mph, or Mach 1.25, ever so slightly faster than the earlier reported 833.9 mph, or Mach 1.24. The jump altitude, meanwhile, wasn't quite so high as earlier thought -- it now stands at 127,852.4 feet, down less than the length of a football field from the previous estimate of 128,100 feet. Either way, it still rounds out to a dizzying 24 miles up.

    The distance of the vertical freefall portion (just over 4 minutes) of the overall descent (just over 9 minutes) was shortened a tad to 119,431.1 feet. The earlier estimate had been 119,846 feet.

    Makes my "jumping off a chair trick" look a bit weak.

    I am suprised he did not pass out with the acceleration and terminal speed.
