“This Solar Cycle 24 at best is going to be half as big as Cycle 23!”
- David Hathaway, Ph.D., NASA Solar Physicist
April 1, 2011 Huntsville, Alabama - In the March 3, 2011, issue of the journal Nature, astrophysicist Dibyendu Nandy from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research in Kolkata, published his theory about why there was such a long, spotless Solar Cycle 23 minimum that broke a century of records. Dr. Nandy built a computer simulation in which “the fast meridional flow in the first half of a solar cycle, followed by a slower flow in the econd half, leads to a deep sunspot minimum, effectively reproducing the Cycle 23 minimum the sun underwent.”
