A Video Clip That Caught My Attention

Title: Northern Lights From Balloon (Project Aether Alaska)
Summary: This Video tells us more about the northern lights, where scientist, teachers and students to observe the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis they had to launch weather balloons with equipment up to 100,000 feet. 
What I Learnt:

  1. I learnt that the Northern Lights are created when charged particles emitted from the sun during a solar flare and get's deflected by the Earth's magnetic field and collide with the upper atmosphere near the poles.
  2. The charges streaming in from the sun can damage satellites causing extensive power outages and disrupt planes around the poles.
  3. This might lead to a geomagnetic catastrophe.

About Me

This is a picture I like to use to describe myself

Hi everyone, my name is Kimberly Tan but most of my peers call me Kim. I basically like to play sports (badminton, swimming, running, floor ball, etc) and during my free time I like to read or do cross-stitching (I'm now working on a BIG project :D) I'm rather talkative so try to stand my talking. If I'm doing a project work, I like to finish it before the due date and I hate procrastination. Sometimes I may get a little bossy (my friends tell me a lot in a good/bad way). I hope to get to know most (or all) of you well!
