Hi Mike First let's look at the total mass of the Sun and its probable real rotation rate: http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/surface.shtml "The photosphere ... the visible surface of the Sun ... rotates on its axis once in about 27 days" [24 at the equator, 30 at the poles] http://www.ualberta.ca/~dumberry/planets.htm "The Sun [has] 99.85% of the mass of the solar system but only 1% of the angular momentum." which means that the outermost surface of the Sun is being dragged around by the angular momentum of the planets. The inner mass of the Sun will be rotating more slowly, with the active core probably being 'static'. Which could mean the Sun's average mass is rotating (and deforming) at a 33 day rate. To confirm that the planets are affecting the surface of the Sun, here's a quote from a largely overlooked piece of recent NASA research: http://gltrs.grc.nasa.gov/reports/2007/TM-2007-214817.pdf "despite the widely accepted thought that believes otherwise. Evidence of apparent relations between planet positions and solar activity was observed and presented" Now let's see why 'mass' should be so important, and what science knows about the possible relationship between masses and half-lives. Here's a quote from Prof Ian Stewart (who, with Prof Jack Cohen, is known for helping-out sci-fi writers with their plots) - "There is no physical difference whatsoever between a uranium atom that is about to decay and one that is not about to decay. None. Absolutely none." I.e. science doesn't know how the atoms of a mass of plutonium conspire, in a synchronized way, to bring about its 'half-life'. Which adds to our list of notable 'mysteries of science': half- life, inertia/momentum, mass/matter, gravity, gyroscopic effect, entanglement, two-slit phenomena, quantized redshift, non-decay of the proton (allied to mass/matter); - all unexplained by the 'standard model' of modern physics - although brave claims are sometimes made that the "imminent discovery" of the Higgs Boson might explain mass/matter (although that seems to me like exchanging one 'magic' for another, since magic particle exchanges do not satisfy my definition of a scientific explanation). [BTW - News: it seems the creaky 'standard model' is to be abandoned. and not before time. Although plans to replace it with 'super-symmetry' have just (today) been squashed by the discovery that the electron is spherical - apparently super- symmetry demanded an ovoid electron. So the science establishment has now virtually admitted what many folk have been saying for years: "physics is stuck in a dead-end" http://www.ufoupdateslist.com/2007/mar/m08-008.shtml And that all those 'political' pressures to force scientists to conform (to the now defunct 'standard model') have just made things worse - and made the science establishments look ridiculous and totalitarian.] So you can see I'm not trying to add "a new 'auxiliary' effect" - far from it. What is suggested is merely a most economic explanation - not least because it might be the one demanded by a whole bunch of shamefully ignored 'mysteries' unexplained by the standard model.
