An Aurora Proposal

“Iceland is a pretty amazing place to watch the stars and the aurora,” Neuroscientist Alex Rivest told SPACE.com.

Rivest has a Ph.D. from MIT and studies how brains form episodic memories. Rivest is also the founder of a non-profit called Blue Kitabu, which works to build sustainable schools in Ghana and Kenya.

The aurora borealis, as well as its Southern Hemisphere counterpart, the aurora australis, is created when charged particles from the sun hit atoms in Earth’s high-altitude atmosphere, which are directed by the planet’s magnetic field. The resulting light show has been dubbed the northern lights in the north, and the southern lights in the south.
