Predicted reduction in solar activity
« on: July 12, 2015, 11:25:15 PM »
So apparently there's been a prediction of an upcoming reduction in solar activity which has just been presented at a UK National Astronomy Meeting.  They're basically saying that their model predicts less activity over the next two solar cycles, and that there may be a "mini-ice age" between 2030 and 2040 due to a 60% drop in solar activity.  Can't seem to find any hard data on this anywhere though.

EDIT: Here's the original press release that everything I've seen in the papers seems to draw from.

Thanks!  I like the concatenated twitter feed from that discussion.
