So one of the scary things happening in this country is school shootings and they’re happening way too often. Now it seems to have become a viral challenge. Yes, there were people trying to make this a trend. According to reports and local police over a dozen teens were arrested in multiple states for their alleged participation in making threats of violence against local schools.
The boys arrested were all between the ages of 13 to 16 across states such as Connecticut, California, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin, and even right here in Maryland. Some school districts even cancelled classes due to the rumors and threats like the one in Lee County Florida that allegedly came from a 13-year-old who sent a Snapchat “indicating he was going to shoot black students” at a Fort Myers private schools.
The Lee County Sherrif said “Threats — real or fake — have consequences, and the safety of our children is my top priority,” and “Anyone, no matter who they are, that issues a threat… will be tracked down, and you will go to jail.”

They say they have touched the Sun. yes, more specifically they say The Parker Solar Probe has successfully flown through the sun’s corona, or upper atmosphere, to sample particles and our star’s magnetic fields.

Not only does this milestone provide us with deeper insights into our Sun’s evolution and (its) impacts on our solar system, but everything we learn about our own star also teaches us more about stars in the rest of the universe.”
They say the 4-inch-thick carbon-composite solar shields will have to withstand temperatures close to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit when closest to the sun but everything on the inside of the spacecraft will remain at a comfortable room temperature.
