In accordance with this awesome contest that Beth Revis is doing: http://bethrevis.blogspot.com/2013/03/announcing-month-of-nasa-with-huge.html, I'll be blogging every day celebrating NASA. Beth Revis writes the Across the Universe Trilogy. You can check out the book review I did of the the books in the archives.
Anyway, onto my space post:
You've probably never even heard of magnetars. They are dense magnetic super novae remnants. They emit most radiation but are too far away for us to see the visible radiation. If too close to Earth a magnetar could wipe all of our credit cards or anything with magnetic strips. Check out nasa.gov for more info on them. They're so intriguing.
