Earthlings, you should be getting prepared for a 'solar flip' in the sun's magnetic field, where Magnetic North and Magnetic South actually switch places!

This 11 year phenomenon, that marks the sun's solar cycle, should start in 3 to 4 months. What will the solar flip mean to us here on earth? Scientists say it will cause stormy space weather and sun spot activity will increase, among other things.

But if you really want to flip about something, the earth also has a cycle where Magnetic North and Magnetic South switch! What will this mean to us here? Details coming in 400,000 years.
