Strange new type of solar wave defies physic

Scientists have detected a strange new type of high-frequency wave on the sun's surface,

and the waves are moving three times faster than scientists thought was possible.

The acoustic waves, called high-frequency retrograde (HFR) vorticity waves, were spotted rippling backward through the sun's plasma in the opposite direction of its rotation.

The previously unknown type of wave was described in a study published March 24 in the journal Nature Astronomy.

Filling in the gaps in their knowledge might help the researchers better understand the sun's interior,

as well as get a better sense of how the sun affects Earth and other planets in the solar system.
