News that the sun's surface is covered with huge bumps or corrugations ran in the San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury News, Christian Science Monitor and Los Angeles Times, among other venues Dec. 18, and astronomer Edward Rhodes, who specializes in the study of the sun's heliosphere, was quoted in many of these. "I don't think this is at all impossible. I think it's potentially very exciting," he told the Associated Press.
