AURORAS FOR CHRISTMAS? Earth is about to enter a solar wind stream flowing
from a large hole in the sun's atmosphere. Polar G1-class geomagnetic
storms are expected to begin on Dec. 21st with magnetic unrest continuing
through Dec. 25th as Earth slowly crosses the broad stream of solar wind.
Santa, be alert for Northern Lights! Updates and aurora sightings may be
found on Spaceweather.com.
 
STUDENT CHRISTMAS SPECIAL: Is there a young scientist in your life? For
Christmas, give them the gift of exploration. For the holiday season only,
we're reducing the cost of payload space on Earth to Sky Calculus balloons
from $500 to only $299.95. Buy an edge of space gift certificate before
Dec. 25th and you can send an experiment, photo, or keepsake item to the
stratosphere, completely supported by an Earth to Sky Calculus launch and
recovery team.
 
[Too many 9s in that price]
 
A Skype brainstorming session is included with each certificate. Dr. Tony
Phillips and other members of the Earth to Sky team will chat with students
to help them craft an experiment that will work in the harsh environment of
the stratosphere.
 
This is not only a great Christmas gift, but also a good kickstarter for
science fair projects. Experiments will be flown and returned along with
video footage, GPS tracking, temperature, pressure, altimetry and radiation
data.
