[quote:aether:MV8xOTI4ODE0XzM1Njg1OTc5XzIzNEFDMUEw] [quote:MissionInvisible:MV8yMTE0NDAzXzM2M0E1NEY=] I'm a big fan of studying/reading about our DNA and how it works...still just a beginner in understanding it, but I ran across an interesting article on Science Daily today. [b]Scientists Shed Light On the 'Dark Matter' of DNA [/b] http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/01/130117142432.htm "In each cell, thousands of regulatory regions control which genes are active at any time. Scientists at the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna have developed a method that reliably detects these regions and measures their activity... However, genes make up only a minority of the entire genome sequence -- roughly two percent in humans. [b]The remainder was once dismissed as "junk," mostly because its function remained elusive. [/b]"Dark matter" might be more appropriate, but gradually light is being shed on this part of the genome, too." I'm really glad this part of our DNA is being studied. While they probably do not let much information out about the metaphysical side of our DNA and hyperabilities, at least they are taking it one step further to study what was once considered "junk". I have a feeling this part of our DNA holds all kinds of keys to understanding our past...and potentially our future!

An X-2 class solar flare recently missed a direct impact with Earth.
Heliophysicists classify solar flares according to their brightness in X-ray wavelengths. C-class flares are the smallest on the scale, with X-ray measurements in the 10^-6 watts per square meter range (W/m^2), while X-class flares can exceed 10^-4 W/m^2. Why is that important?
An X-2 solar flare has enough energy to overload satellite circuits and disrupt other forms of communication should its full force be directed at Earth.
Modern astronomers believe that solar flares, or coronal mass ejections (CME), occur when magnetic reconnection events in the Sun’s atmosphere cause a short circuit in magnetic field lines. According to one theory, “magnetic energy” then accelerates the superheated gases into space. Although no one knows what “magnetic reconnection” is, it is the only explanation offered................
