true dat, true dat, but I still knew some of the constellations...
I feel really bad for karatekid44, though, all he did was focus on the constellations and tried to squeeze some evolution cycles in there too!!!

i agree. with reach u could figure out a lot about star charasteristics once u understood the basics adn the only memoriztion was over the stars and the basic info on them. in solar ure going to have to just plain memorize all the planets charecteristics... very little to figure out im guessing.

the stuff over the sun most likely going to be over its layers and the properties of the photoshpere adn stuff like that.

most likely. i guessing that anything over the sun's charecteristics, layers, properties, and phenomena will be fair game in SS.

prob.
will we have to know mass coronal ejections + how they affect the Earth???

The sun's part of the Solar System, so we'll probably have to know most things about it + how it influences the solar system.
