Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center warns of a very long and cold winter as our star’s sunspot activity drops to a new low.
“If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold,” said Mlynczak.
The NASA scientist was able to confirm this by monitoring our planet’s atmosphere for heat energy loss.
According to Metro.co.uk:
“Sunspot activity follows a cycle which is believed to last 11 years as the number of patches peaks and drops.”
“There have been very few spots on the sun for most of this year, meaning that it could be about to get very cold, very quickly.”
