The informative NOVA documentary looks at the extensive study being done of the Sun, which we're only starting to really understand, exploring the various aspects of light and energy, and the hazards it could pose for a modern plugged in world.

Disappointing, all hype and little substance, in a period in which the sun is in a prolonged quiet cycle.
