Climate change in the Solar System...

They're being kinda cute about this. "...could result in changing conditions in the solar system." Uh huh. No mention of changes in the Earth's climate. As in, global cooling. That's the real question.

Move along folks, nothing to see here....

MEDIA ADVISORY : M08-176 NASA To Discuss Conditions On And Surrounding The Sun

WASHINGTON -- NASA will hold a media teleconference Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 12:30 p.m. EDT, to discuss data from the joint NASA and European Space Agency Ulysses mission that reveals the sun's solar wind is at a 50-year low. The sun's current state could result in changing conditions in the solar system.

Ulysses was the first mission to survey the space environment above and below the poles of the sun. The reams of data Ulysses returned have changed forever the way scientists view our star and its effects. The venerable spacecraft has lasted more than 17 years - almost four times its expected mission lifetime... [Thanks to Glenn Reynolds]
