"Imma mu'f##kin starboy"

Phage is right, we are all made of star stuff.

I do find it quite amazing to think that many of the atoms in my body were once inside a star -- and the heavier elements inside my body were created in a supernova explosion of a long, long dead star.

We are made of stuff 'from stars' after they explode, right?

This I've seen, also very cool. I have a house in Cape Canaveral and spend a lot of time at the space center. Always interesting and new things! You are my friend, from the Great White North eh? reply to: LuXTeN

Really cool.
Now if we could just capture some solar plasma contain it and make it into a desktop paper weight.

Yup. But you're in luck, some star has already exploded, just for you.

That's their finest piece.

There is no competition, hence their almost God like status.

Hoping some whiz bang will show us close ups of the star stuff in question...

Since they've trapped it in cells, I doubt the stuff will be visible.

Unless it's containment field failed.
In that case things might be very hot.

Actually it will. These are impacts on germanium substrates, like when the camera on SOHO get struck while viewing the sun.

But I'mnotsure, maybe more experts can weigh in.

Further: Its not the same as the comet dust gatherer, but there is 'mass' associated with these solar mass ejections, I.e. cosmic dust.

Werent they planning on setting up plates at some point to filter out the effects of the suns radiation or uv rays? I can't remember if they scrapped that or not.

Yes the star in a jar!

I'd love to put a piece of the sun in a pendant and wear it. That would be very cool.


Ahhh, here we go, information about the collectors and images of the impacts on the collectors...
