    We have Solar System News and Galactic News so I think the sun itself deserves its own thread. Starting with the seven year mission to the sun that just began. What's 250 times faster than a speeding bullet - the rocket when it really gets going.

    Wow! 1972 sun spots apparently caused a big bang. https://spaceweatherarchive.com/2018/11/10/space-weather-in-wartime-a-sunspot-detonates-naval-mines/

    The sun has an eleven year cycle (we're in deep solar minimum right now.) Ever wonder why eleven years? I'll confess that question never seriously crossed my mind. New research says it's the combined gravitational pull of Earth, Venus and Jupiter. https://www.space.com/planets-affect-solar-cycle.html
