    Did you notice that all of the BBC's photos had "Copyright NASA" on them?

    All the BBC did was re-post some NASA images that won't be news to many here, but even this simple act was enough to make me think about aurora on other planets, what the difference between a star and a planet really is and gives me some idea of the scale of the features by comparing them to the size of the earth. That's pretty good for such a simple sequence of photos. Giving me reason to think about things outside the day-to-day routine like this is just what I want out of slashdot. Thanks.
