The Sun's Magnetism Will Flip Soon
- 08/07/2013 12:59 PM EDT Sci/Tech
The sun's magnetic fields are expected to switch in the next few months, basically flipping the north and south poles. It's not the apocalypse, though. This naturally occurring change happens every 11 years when magnetic fields weaken and then reverse.
The entire solar system can be effected somehow with Earth potentially having stormier weather over that time. We can still count on gravity though.
