A science writer and education manager at NASA's Goddard Space Center, Michael Carlowicz writes: "If you read most textbooks or look with the unaided human eye, you would be convinced that the space between Sun and Earth is a vast, dark void, and the Sun is a static, unblemished fireball. But in reality, our nearest star is roiling with activity, changing on every time scale from seconds to geologic eras.
