NASA EDGE: NE Live@Sun-Earth Day 2010

We just enjoyed another Spring Equinox, and everyone knows that no Spring Equinox is complete without enjoying the culmination of the NASA Sun-Earth Day Team's year long thematic study and celebration of the heliosphere. This year's theme: Magnetic Storms. And the Magnetic Storm experts joined NASA EDGE on the set during our live, near 'magnetospherence' free webcast from the National Science Teachers Association Conference in Philadelphia, PA. We even witnessed a cool demonstration of magnetospherence and our magnetosphere by some visiting science teachers. Of course, Blair was sent to the Principal's office.
