Abstract : Solar and stellar minima represent times of low magnetic activity and simple helio/asterospheres. They are thus excellent targets for interdisciplinary, system-wide studies of the origins of stellar variability and consequent impacts on planetary systems. The recent solar minimum lasted longer and was quieter than any we have observed in the Space Age, inspiring both scientific and public interest. It also extends our knowledge of the dynamic range of solar activity and how it… CONTINUE READING
