  • Theories that require the co-genetic formation of the Sun and planets have difficulty in explaining the slow rotation of the Sun. An analysis is made of various mechanisms for slowing down the core of an evolving nebula. Two of these involve a high magnetic dipole moment for the early Sun. The first envisages magnetic linkage to an external plasma but requires a dipole moment 106 times that of the present Sun. The other is based on the co-rotation of m atter leaving the Sun during a T Tauri… CONTINUE READING
