The money needed to send Nicole Jackson to Disney has been raised! They’re over the $3000 mark needed to fund her Halloween trip, but there is always the chance that she could need emergency treatment while she’s in Florida, so for the time being the fund will remain open to those who are feeling generous and want to help out! I’m not sure when it will close, my guess is soon since travel arrangements need to be made. For now, you can still find the page HERE!

Bring home the Universe!
Introducing the new and official Hey there, Universe online store! (powered by Amazon)
I have went through the entirety of the science-“cosm” on Amazon and have hand-picked a select few items that are featured here. Most notably, I want to introduce my followers to a list of my favorite science books, most of which are considered “popular science”, but some are also good reads for beginners, as well as experts who are interested in topics from other subjects.
Along with the books—which have been categorized into “Astrobiology, Biology, Astronomy, Physics, Geology”—I have also picked out some of my favorite apparel items on Amazon as well as gifts, toys, decors, for all of us who want to bring home the universe. 
I will try to promote this shop as little as possible (potentially 2 or 3 times a week), not every other hour, so don’t fret! The shop is run by me but all the transactions will be handled through Amazon. Feel free to give me a feedback on the store, or if you’re interested in seeing any specific item in the list. 
Lastly, if you are a college student (it’s back-to-school time again!), I would definitely recommend getting Amazon Prime! I’m sure you’ve heard of it by now, you get FREE Two-Day Shipping for one year just for signing up for Amazon Student. Click here to sign up today!

Solar Storms Sending Biggest Threats to Earth Today and Tomorrow
by Brian K. Sullivan
Airlines have rerouted some flights and global positioning system and radio transmissions may be degraded through tomorrow as two solar eruptions strike Earth and affect its magnetic field.
The U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center is tracking two coronal mass ejections, “huge expulsions of magnetic field and plasma” that shot out of an area near the center of the sun’s disc.
See images of Coronal Mass Ejections
“Essentially the sun just shot out a magnet and it is about to interact with another magnet, Earth’s magnet,” William Murtagh, program coordinator of the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center, said yesterday. When the ejections reach Earth, they will touch off geomagnetic storms that are forecast to last at least until tomorrow.
The first wave of the two-part event arrived last night and the second one was detected at 12:09 p.m. New York time, the center said. A G2 geomagnetic storm was forecast for later today and a stronger G3 storm tomorrow. The last G3 storm to strike the Earth was June 29, 2013, the center said.
Geomagnetic storms, like hurricanes, are classified on a five-step scale with G1 being the weakest and G5 the strongest.
Radiation associated with the passages of the waves has been raised to an S2 level, which means passengers in high-flying aircraft at higher latitudes “may experience small, increased radiation exposures.”
United Airlines Inc. has rerouted a “few” flights from the U.S. to Asia that traverse the North Pole because of the storms, said Megan McCarthy, a spokeswoman for United Continental Holdings Inc.

Some satellites may have minor problems, although Earth should be spared the most crippling impacts of these kinds of events, which can include disruptions to electric grids and radiation strong enough to cause polar flights to change routes, said Thomas Berger, the center’s director. People away from city lights may see a brilliant display in the northern sky.
