Staring at the sun: in 3D!

by Paul Jay, CBC News Online

NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory, or STEREO, satellites have brought back the first 3-D images of the sun, giving scientists a view of the sun's atmosphere in three dimensions.

All you need are a nifty pair of 3-D glasses to properly view both the images and the movies: Fortunately, NASA includes a tutorial on how to make the glasses. All we need now is Joe Flaherty to narrate as the solar flares fly into view. Scary kids!
