Slashdot | Flare Sends A Gigaton Of Solar Detritus Toward Earth » "This morning at about 10:00 UT, a major explosion occured on the Sun. The solar X-ray output went up by over 1,000 times. About a billion tons of material are speeding toward Earth at over a million miles per hour, and should hit sometime in the next couple of days." Very cool!
