Tonight, instead of asking your kids what they learned in school today, consider asking them what questions they asked in school today.  It might help you get past the typical answer of "nothing", and also help your kids realize that they are responsible for taking an active role in their own learning.  We want critical thinkers and questioners, not just kids who can remember and regurgitate.

On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun's atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT. The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled away from the sun at over 900 miles per second. This movie shows the ejection from a variety of viewpoints as captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO), and the joint ESA/NASA Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).
