Curiouser and Curiouser

The solar wind has died down. The article chirps cheerily that this will mean satellites stay up longer. What they haven't mentioned is the satellites could be doorstops while they are orbiting longer since they will be more exposed to damaging cosmic radiation. I swear ... when are these people going to either get scientists on staff or at least on call to point out stuff like this?

More importantly, this is putting a HUGE CRIMP in my plan to go to Alaska and see the Aurora Borealis. Fooey.
