The Sun is Slowing Down and Here’s Why


No need to panic, but scientists have noted for some time now, decades in fact, that the outer layer of the sun is slowing down. But it’s only recently that they’ve been able to understand why this is happening—it all comes down to solar radiation, the same radiation that heats the earth, but while it warms our planet it’s causing the sun, due to special relativity, to slow down starting from its outer layer using a kind of braking effect.

It’s not going to do anything to how the sun affects us, but scientists now need to discover how it might affect the solar magnetic field, which causes solar flares which in turn can effect telecommunications down here on earth.
