Massive X-Ray Burst Blinds the Swift As Our Atmosphere Collapses

Two links from Graymalkin today.  Huzzah!

Here, a recording-breaking burst of x-rays temporarily blinded NASA's Swift space observatory.  Things are back to normal now, but I'd be interested in know the source of the blast.

Also on the subject of NASA, scientists have found yet another record-breaking incident.  Apparently, our atmosphere has made an "impressive" collapse and rebound.

Thanks, Graymalkin!
