The background is Richard Feynman's hand written formulation of quantum theory. In 1965 Feynman won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work in the field of quantum electrodynamics. Feynman made major contributions to the development of the atomic bomb while at the Los Alamos National laboratory during his 20s.
The Sun is a magnetized body of gas that is constantly expelling highly ionized plama into space. This plasma is called the Solar Wind. The Earth is immersed within the Solar Wind and is protected from the harmful plasma by the Earth's own magnetic field. Occasionally, when the Sun's magnetic field lines up properly with the Earth's magnetic reconnection occurs and the Solar Wind can penetrate into the Earth's atmosphere as the Aurora.
I've been blogging since 2005. My life has changed drastically since I started the blog as a bachelorette with a lovable, dorky Golden Retriever named Toby by my side. Since then, I've been joined by my awesome husband and two smartest, silliest, and most loving kids. Through the years, the focus of my blog is still as it was since the beginning, to share photos and discussions of random stuff that I find interesting, disturbing, or to my liking.
