According to the author of SpaceWeather, Dr. Tony Phillips, earth will witness another natural lockdown, only it will be worse. Scientist reveal that the sun has gone into a state where there is very less solar activity on its surface.
Currently the sun is in the state of “Solar Minimum”, which means no solar activity on its surface. Scientists say that, this lockdown will case freezing weather, earthquakes and volcano eruptions on earth.
Life comes to halt due to COVID-19
The recent pandemic has caused the life to come to halt. People around the world are in lockdown and the life almost everywhere has come to standstill. In this time of social disconnection Salam Planet is connecting everyone to the world and the much needed entertainment to keep yourself entertained during the lockdown.
Dr. Tony Phillips further adds that this solar minimum could be the longest in the past century.
“Current sunspot count suggest it is one of the deepest of the past century. The sun’s magnetic field has become weak, allowing extra cosmic rays into the solar system.”
NASA scientists are also of the same view and say that this minimum could be similar to the previous one that occurred between 1790 and 1830.
It was called Dalton minimum and the temperatures at that time fell below 20C. It also disrupted food chains all over the globe and as a result of this collapse mankind suffered a lot.
Dalton Minimum during 1790 & 1830:
Food was not the only tragedy that happened back then, almost 70,000 people lost their life in the second-largest volcano eruption in the history in the same period.
Normally July, is a shiny month with sun spearding its heat all over, however, the year 1816 was not the same due to Dalton minimum. It was called “Year without a summer” because in July the world witnessed snowfall for the first time.
