sun 'flips' polarities.

Not the newspaper (I use the term loosely)...our celestial body...(not page three either) Grin
I imagine this will give NASA a bit of work to do.

Re: sun 'flips' polarities.

I Guess that if the Earth flipped polarities that would be a much greater problem,

Re: sun 'flips' polarities.

And if the Earth did flip polarities what would happen to Sat Nav systems ? Would they be affected in any way ?

Migratory birds might have a problem.

Re: sun 'flips' polarities.

I Guess the birds would be the least of our problems.

Re: sun 'flips' polarities.

I was thinking from the birds' point of view but it has happened before so they are probably used to it and have procedures in place.

Re: sun 'flips' polarities.

Thinking about birds...what about penguins? Would they suddenly find themselves on the wrong pole?
And thinking about cuckoo's, ok Druids, hippy tree-huggers, would this polarity switch affect ley-lines? If so, who's to say they have them in the right place now?  Cry

Re: sun 'flips' polarities.

Does this FLIP not takes thousands of years though ? I'm sure i have read an article somewhere explaining this polarity flip with Earth, which was theoretically possible according to a computer simulation.

Just the 11 for the sun then.

sort of and no
the lay lines would stay in the same place but there polarity would change, the lay line intersections are all points at which a magnetic pole could switch through (since there are so many of them during the flux period it wont switch through them all) some of them are stronger magnetic points than others indicating that they have already been utilised in this way in the past
birds all utilise an in built loadstone sensor to navigate which is why they tend to leave areas of impending magnetic interference (such as volcanoes) prior to the event occurring (well natural ones at least) which is often why it is said any major event in nature is clearly indicated through the animals that inhabit the focal point.......
as to penguins they will end up dying out if they don't adapt to the change(s) in the polar location in relation to there habitat, the two poles are vastly different in that regard and as such what lives in one region may not similarly live in the other, the real quandary would be what if rather than shifiting its magnetic centreline the earth instead rolled so it ended the other way up ........then north would be down and south would be up or would it ......
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Does that mean we will get back all our "Green Taxes" back as a refund from the government?  You know.... Just like missold PPI with the banksHuh?Huh

Re: sun 'flips' polarities.

When the Earth's field flips it won't be a simple changeover. It will be a complex gradual process. One consequence could be a diminution of "projective" magnetic field which stops solar particles hitting the surface of the earth. It may fry your favourite PN Router.

Re: sun 'flips' polarities.

Also multiple north 'poles' can be a consequence during the in flux stage.

We'd have to send a few 'B' list movies stars down to give the molten core a good stir.
