The Sun is set to “flip upside down” within weeks as its magnetic field reverses polarity in an event that will send ripple effects throughout the solar system.

Although it may sound like a catastrophic occurrence, there’s no need to run for cover. The sun switches its polarity, flipping its magnetic north and south, once every eleven years through an internal mechanism about which little is understood.

The swap could however cause intergalactic weather fronts such as geomagnetic storms, which can interfere with satellites and cause radio blackouts.

The magnetic field of the earth is way overdue to flip, that will cause a lot more bovver. :)

Some other reports suggest the only change is going to be the amalgamation, (or loss) of the second south pole that has been wandering around for a few months.

I doubt very much there will be any issues, bar the compass users on Antartica losing their way back to the pub.

Yup, the Sun goes through an 11-year cycle, and millions of years later the Earth is still here. There's no need for people to panic :squeeze:

I remember the solar eclipse back in 1999, when thousands of people were stocking up on goods because they were convinced it was the end of the world (based on Nostradamus' predictions).

Sad cunts!
