Research Shows Sun’s Magnetic Field Originates Closer to Surface

Recent studies reveal that the Sun’s magnetic field originates much closer to the surface than previously believed, around 20,000 miles below instead of over 130,000 miles. This finding, published in Nature and derived using advanced computer models on NASA supercomputers, sheds light on the solar dynamo process, which is essential in understanding solar activity. This closer origin influences the solar cycle and helps predict solar storms, which impact Earth’s technology and atmosphere. Historical and modern research, from Galileo’s early observations to contemporary modeling, continues to enhance our comprehension of the Sun’s behavior and its effects on Earth.
