Scientists propose new theory on origins of sun’s magnetic field

In a groundbreaking study, scientists have proposed a new theory on the origins of the sun’s magnetic field, a phenomenon that has puzzled astronomers since Galileo first observed sunspots in the early 1600s.

Contrary to previous beliefs that the magnetic field originated deep within the sun, researchers now suggest it forms much closer to the surface.

According to the study published the journal “Nature”, The model, which could significantly enhance the understanding of the 11-year solar cycle and space weather forecasting, posits that the magnetic field is generated about 20,000 miles (32,100 kilometers) below the sun’s surface.
