Solar Sleuths Solve 60-Year-Old Mystery of Sun’s Magnetic Waves

Sun's Chromosphere

 

“This new research opens the door to providing a new understanding of the mystery surrounding the Sun’s magnetic waves. This is a crucial step towards explaining the coronal heating problem—where the temperature a few thousand kilometers from the surface—is hotter than the heat source itself,” said Dr. Ben Snow, from the University of Exeter and a co-author of a new study that led to the ground-breaking discovery of why the Sun’s magnetic waves strengthen and grow as they emerge from its surface, which could help to solve the mystery of how the corona of the Sun maintains its multi-million degree temperatures.

Ancient Antarctica Ice –“Foreshadows Carbon Dioxide Levels Not Seen in 2 Million Years”

 

Antarctica Ice-Core Station

 

“We’re in a different situation now — carbon dioxide is the major player in our current world,” said Princeton University geophysicist Yuzhen Yan, lead author of a new climate-change study based on two- million-year-old ice cores from Antarctica. “If we want to look into the geologic past for an analogy of what’s going on in our world today, we need to go beyond 2 million years to find it.”
