Little Ice Age, scientists have warned could occur on Earth. A new study found that between 2020 and 2030 solar cycles may neutralize each other, resulting in a phenomenon known as the Maunder Minimum.
New model of solar activity shows a violation of the 11-year periodicity. It describes the effects of the dynamo in two layers of the sun, one of which is closer to the surface, the other – in the convection zone deep.
According to the forecast made by Professor Valentina Zharkova, to the third decade of this century, solar activity will decrease by 60 percent, resulting in a small ice age. The study results were presented at a meeting of astronomers in Llandudno in Wales. Read the rest of this entry »

Based on the analysis of genetic information, scientists said that in the genome of human ancestors found traces of three inter specific crosses: with Neanderthals, denisovtsami, as well as another, yet unknown to science species.
According to Reuters, the findings were made?? on the basis of genetic analysis 1.5 thousand. Man. Three crossbreeding occurred with Neanderthals, an extinct denisovtsami and mysterious man. Signs of genetic ancestry denisovtsev – from 2 to 4% – were found among the inhabitants of the equatorial islands of Melanesia. Also Melanesians traces of genes of Neanderthals were discovered – about 2%. Read the rest of this entry »

A large hole was formed in the atmosphere over the north pole of the Sun, it erupts from the solar wind into space. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded a hole March 21st.
This type of atmospheric holes called coronal hole. Coronal holes are places where the sun’s magnetic field opens and allows the solar wind flow. In the above image of the solar wind plasma flow is shown by the white arrows. Read the rest of this entry »
