The closest images ever taken of the Sun reveal unexpected discovery

actually, by studying the rods that are taken on Earth's poles, we have a lot of data, some of which indicates rise and fall in temperature of the surface. This is how we know about cycles that Sun goes through. And yes, there are colder cycles and warmer cycles swapping places all the time.
This data goes back almost a billion years.

Also we know a GREAT DEAL about the universe, not "very little" as you say.

edit: for global warming people: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=historical+solar+cycles&t=ffab&iax=images&ia=images
As I see it, the link you provided does not contain evidence of a link to "global warming" and solar cycles.

Science has accounted for solar cycles in estimates of how much it contributes to climate change. In that same accounting process, the effect of solar cycles on climate change has been discounted as minimal.
From the article:
According to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the current scientific consensus is that long and short-term variations in solar activity play only a very small role in Earth’s climate.

omg wouldn't it just.

To anyone else, that likes to switch off from politics and all the bullshit checkout Isaac Arthur and John Michael Godier (also Event Horizon) channels on YouTube. Some amazing content.
Isaac Arthur, It took me a little time to get used to his accent but once I did I found his videos to be utterly captivating and I can feel my mind expanding as he talks. Incredible stuff that invokes that sense of wonder I used to get from reading good sci-fi.

Same took me a while to get used to the way he sounds but now I rarely notice it. Cool Worlds is another good channel. Sometimes I have to play them multiple times throughout a week as half the information goes over my head.

From the article:
you shouldn't involve yourself in these things, you obviously can read, but cannot filter information or form opinions. Link I provided shows the images you claim are irrelevant, and each image leads to a paper or an article.

Maybe this video is more on your intellectual level:

PS. I am NOT climate change denier, Climate change is constant, and human contribution of CO2 during industrial revolution until today cannot be denied, but it's nothing major. Worse has passed (Industrial revolution)

I wish "my" idea of afterlife was a thing. Die and be able to coast throughout the whole universe freely. Kind of like Thanos and "his" stones. Be able to enter any atmosphere, be near a black hole, understand all type of communications etc. Now that is heaven.
There's a catch ..... your max velocity will be 10.000 miles an hour, call me when your at Alpha Century, our star next door. /s

It's actually ~185,000.00 miles PER SECOND, or some 300,000.00 km/s
...unless you were not thinking about lightspeed.

You most likely didn't understood I was replying to his idea of the afterlife

Gonna take a LONG *** TIME, which was the joke. (the /s means sarcasm)

Heh, I did. I just understood it differently apparently, coasting at lightspeed whole eternity, doesn't matter when you arrive (ignoring the time limit before universe goes cold of course)

I’d like to speak with those scientists making assumptions about the sun while we are still observing it (and we know very little about it).
Then we could say the same about Big Bang. Just a theory with lots of holes, we don't even know if space and matter in it has a finite diameter or it is infinite. Because whenever me measured it the damn thing was flat.

But here's the link to the double-dynamo article:
