NASA confirms the world was almost knocked back to the 18th century

On July 23, 2012, two giant plasma clouds, known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs) erupted from the sun creating an epic solar storm. As luck would have it, the CMEs weren’t directed at the Earth, but if it had happened one week earlier the point of eruption would have been Earth-facing and would have resulted in trillions of dollars of damage to the planet, mostly due to the widespread blackouts, damage to satellites and general interruption of and damage to various electrical systems on Earth.

Old married Spirk headcanons:

  • Jim loves pinot noir and enjoys drinking it with his dinner.
  • Spock almost always drinks hot tea. He likes Vulcan flavors and Moroccan mint.
  • Jim gets fanmail every month from cadets.
  • When Spock goes out, he prefers to wear fitted trousers, tunics he bought on Vulcan, and dress shoes. All of these are black.
  • Jim has a collection of plaid shirts hanging in the closet.
  • Jim has a pair of plaid boxers.
  • Jim and Spock sometimes wake up early to watch the sun rise on Earth.
  • In the winter, Jim insists that Spock should use chapstick and wear a scarf.
  • Spock owns two scarves. One is black, one is dark blue. Both have ‘J+S’ discreetly stitched towards the right end of both.
  • ^ They were gifts from Jim.
  • Jim facetiously suggested including smut in the reports Spock writes for the Vulcan Embassy to make sure they’re actually reading them.
  • ^ Spock thought he was serious and cited that would be against regulation.
  • When Jim and Spock are at home and the space is closed between them, they put their foreheads together. A lot.
  • Jim and Spock experience the most explosive mind melds ever because they have decades of massive feels.
