NASA Connect Video containing five segments as described below. NASA Connect segment exploring solar flares and how NASA scientists study these events. The video explains the goal of the HESSI satellite, when solar flares occur, and how solar flares effect the Earth's atmosphere. NASA Connect segment involving students in an activity that investigates the cycles of solar flares. The video incorporates problem solving strategies while students compute percentages of M-class flares and graph data. NASA Connect segment explaining how NASA scientists use satellites to study and predict solar storms. The segment also explores which satellites are used, why this research is important, and how the storms might affect Earth. NASA Connect segment exploring the basic properties of the sun and its composition. The segment explains what sun spots are and how they effect the solar system.
