Sun's Magnetic Field To Flip – 'Will Have Ripple Effects Throughout the Solar System'

     Get ready, Earth. The sun's magnetic field is about to do a 180 when the celestial body's electromagnetism flips and changes polarity.

According to NASA-supported observations, the complete reversal is expected to take place in the coming months.

"It looks like we're no more than three to four months away from a complete field reversal," Todd Hoeksema, a solar physicist and director of Stanford University's Wilcox Solar Observatory, said in a statement released by the agency. "This change will have ripple effects throughout the solar system."

So should we be concerned about the reversal of the sun's magnetic field? . . .


  1. This isn't even news-worthy.

  2. Funny... four months would be Dec. And, this is really 2012, not 2013. There was no year 0. Just a funny thought.
