“By the 1680s, Venice’s canals were freezing solid in winter, something no one alive had ever witnessed.”
Bob Berman, The Sun's Heartbeat: And Other Stories from the Life of the Star That Powers Our Planet

“How many of your friends know that there’s a “sun inside the Sun”? Or that a bizarre, newly found zone beneath the solar surface, the tachocline, is solely responsible for its violence?

Bob Berman, The Sun's Heartbeat: And Other Stories from the Life of the Star That Powers Our Planet
