I totally agree with the judges. Absolutely breathtaking videos *thumbs up*NASA has just released five new videos called "Mysteries of the Sun". The videos describe the science of the Sun and its effects on the solar system and Earth. These five movies (Space Weather, Solar Variability, The Heliosphere, Earth's Magnetosphere, Earth's Upper Atmosphere) cover the breadth of solar, heliospheric, and geospace science, a field known as heliophysics.
With beautiful graphics and well-explained narration, the series has won awards even before its public release, including the 2011 Platinum 3rd Annual Pixie Award in the category of Motion Graphics, receiving compliments from the judges such as "breath-taking animation" and "Some of the best in the competition."
The five movies are available on DVD but you can watch them online as well:
Very interesting videos. Plus, there's a guidebook (39MB pdf file) with full-color images, diagrams, and charts that will make the science of heliophysics clear for all readers. You can download it (see the link above).
