secrets of the sun, good stuff...keep em coming.

good stuff, quite informative. secrets of the sun is new because it explains the reason for the coronosphere to be so hot which was only discoverd recently.

yet another "sensational" history channel thing...

I watched episode 3 and thought it to be just goofy. The science of course is sound, but the show spends so much time around the idea of the "apacolypse" or "armageddon" (terms used often). And of course the comparisons to nuclear weapons and nuclear fallout are abound. The rediculous statement that we should absolutely be watchful and fearful of an event that could eradicate my molecular structure faster than I could be aware of it is just....DUMB. Make no mistake, this show is not about science, but about fear. At the root of it's hidden message. . . why do we need our government to protect us. It's so sad. Save your money (and your mind), read a book instead. (2 stars for sound science). Up yours History Channel.

Off to a good start.

Well done presentation. Normally I'm pretty critical on shows like this but, it seemed fine to me. I'm intrigued to see more.
