I lived in Alaska for 4 years and the northern lights are amazing! I can say the most impressive part (to me anyway) was the fact there was NO noise! It was a great light show, with the wavy curtains of multi-colors in the night sky. Makes me wish I was back in Fairbanks.

It's what you actually see. I've seen it a couple of times on the plane to Japan.

Saw some great aurora pics on TV from Scotland last night. Someone who has seen one tell me something - when you see "curtains" of light moving across the sky, is that what you actually see, or is that time-lapse video?

We all love those wireless links, but there is still a major role for copper and especially optical fiber.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
