I didn't know whether to post this here or in the cometary section, but seeing as STEREO's involved...

A cool movie of Comet Encke's tail being seemingly ripped off by a CME in this story:

Don't worry - Comets are like gecko's - it will grow a new one.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
