[color=green]I found the title to this article funny.[/color] [b]Tamed Dragon supply ship arrives at space station[/b] [i]In the end, the Dragon approached the orbiting lab with its 1-ton load about as smoothly as could be expected, with all of its thrusters, or little maneuvering rockets, operating perfectly. The capture occurred as the two spacecraft zoomed 250 miles above Ukraine. "As they say, it's not where you start, but where you finish that counts," said space station commander Kevin Ford, "and you guys really finished this one on the mark." The actual anchoring of the Dragon to the space station, 2½ hours after its arrival, also unfolded without a hitch. "The Dragon is ours!" Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield announced via Twitter. The 41-year-old entrepreneur, who also runs the electric car maker Tesla, oversaw the entire operation from Hawthorne, Calif., home to SpaceX and the company's Mission Control. The Dragon's splashdown in the Pacific, meanwhile, remains on schedule for March 25.

The launch includes the debut test flight of the first operational Dragon spacecraft built by SpaceX.

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................
