The future's so bright, you gotta wear shades

Today's post is for those of you with a bit of science geek in ya.

NASA is going to the sun
. HUH? Yeah, they're going to send a probe into the corona. It's considerably hotter there than than on the surface, and they're hopefully gonna figure out why (assuming the probe doesn't burn up in the process)

Of course, we have to wait another 6.5 years before they're ready to launch, but this looks like one of the cooler (uh... should I have said "hotter?") missions that's NASA's got up it's sleeve.

Hopefully they'll publish more about the materials and science they'll be using.. then my inner geek will be satisfied, because this is really just a teaser.
