Spacecraft Sees Giant 'Hole' In the Sun (Video)

A space telescope aimed at the sun has spotted a gigantic hole in the solar atmosphere — a dark spot that covers nearly a quarter of our closest star, spewing solar material and gas into space.

The so-called coronal hole over the sun's north pole came into view between July 13 and 18 and was observed by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO. NASA released a video of the sun hole as seen by the SOHO spacecraft, showing the region as a vast dark spot surrounded by solar activity.

Hopefully the sun isnt about to start expanding into its red giant phase...

Because if it is,if thats whats really been going on,then we are totally and absolutely screwed...

No one really knows how long that unstoppable process takes to occur and no one really knows when it will happen and it will happen to our sun someday and so it could be happening right now...

Oh well what the f##k nothing lasts forever and all good things must come to an end...

Sooner or later the earth and everything and everyone around it and upon it and within it will be completely annihilated...

Forced to return to the nuclear womb of our mother sun...

Certainly forces us all to realize what really matters and what actually means nothing at all...

At least we all can look on the bright side!

We'll have about eight minutes to try and make some more money before we even know what happened...

How long sunlight takes to reach earth...

Pretty cool huh?!

I cant wait to go to work again?!

Know what I mean?!

Hear what i'm saying?!

It just means the cycle will start again somewhere. I doubt we'll be here to observe it when that happens.

Pretty cool pics though. thumbsup.gif
