It can't possibly be safe to live in close proximity to such a monstrous thing. Somebody should do something!

Compared to the Earth, how massive are those "sticks of wood" referred to by Ugordan in 160?
And, where were Mercury and Messenger when the big outburst took place?
Do events like this have the ability to damage the spacecraft?

Just noticed this morning - do these SDO images look blurry to you?

They look upsampled to me. Eyeballing it, I'd say the original frames were 4x4 binned.

It doesn't look "ok" to me, I see huge data gaps in certain bands. Obviously some bandwidth/downlink issues.

This one seems ok to me though http://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/assets/img/latest/f_211_193_171.jpg I don't see anything on the website to say they have changed the images.
