The Sun is also in Lockdown!

  1. Wow! So, the sun is also in lockdown with us. Is that the reason that we are having hailstorms, earthquakes so frequently! Who knows? Let’s hope we get back to our normal life again soon.

    1. According to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the current scientific consensus is that long and short-term variations in solar activity play only a very small role in Earth’s climate. Warming from increased levels of human-produced greenhouse gases is actually many times stronger than any effects due to recent variations in solar activity. There’s a pink elephant in the room! 😉

  2. And guess what I studied in geography that a later(I guess the deepest) is also called corona. I have studied about sunspots in geography… Isn’t it true that they appear after a period of some 11 years? And these are originators of solar flares… Also these are relatively cooler regions in sun. Bahut sara knowledge…. Mai toh pura padhte padhte thak gayi.😍😍

    1. Hahaha!
      The Sun’s corona is the outermost part of the Sun’s atmosphere. It is usually hidden by the bright light of the Sun’s surface and can be seen during a total solar eclipse. Yes, the solar minimum and maximum are the two extremes of solar cycles with average period of 11 years.
      Thanks for your interest and read.

  3. Quite informative! Sunspots occur due to change in the magnetic flux and hence appear in pairs which is therefore suggestive of the the extra energy released from the nuclear fusion of the Hydrogen molecule to become Helium and hence giving out energy in the form of heat, electromagnetic waves etc, etc. The sunspots are formed as a result of the balance in between the energy. So reduced sun spots would mean reduce fusion reaction and hence means reduced hydrogen storage and hence may be sun is just trying to replenish its sources so as to survive the battle against its own extinction.
    What I mean to say is that its just like sleeping with reduce activity so as to recover the lost energy as we do, that makes me think that may be Darwin’s “struggle for existence and survival of the fittest theory” does not only apply to what we think or it may actually be more universal.
    Hmmm……. This post made my grey cells race.
