Geeked Out!: NASA sun sequence, epic slip 'n' slide

It's a scene that would have made George Harrison proud, although a song like "Here Comes the Sun" would be an understated backdrop for NASA's latest images of our home star.

A new composite video released from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center illustrates the power and brilliance of the sun—thanks to a series of epic images of a recent explosion of solar material known as plasma.

The result: A 200,000 mile long filament that created an effect that's being dubbed "the canyon of fire."

Check out this and some other red hot web videos (robot cheetahs, DIY smoothies and epic slip & slides) in the latest episode of Geeked Out.
