The growth of British trees appears to follow a cosmic pattern, with trees growing faster when high levels of cosmic radiation arrive from space. Researchers made the discovery studying how growth rings of spruce trees have varied over the past half a century. As yet, they cannot explain the pattern, but variation in cosmic rays impacted tree growth more than changes in temperature or precipitation. The study is published in the scientific journal New Phytologist.

This is really interesting. I wonder what else is affected by cosmic rays/solar radiation. Could this have some ageing affects on humans or quite possibly make any alterations to Human DNA.....

Very interesting indeed, I shall give you a flag on my way out.

I have been reading a little bit about the Geminga shockwave that hit earth around 50,000 years ago, in evolutionary terms around the time that we got all technological.

That would be because I am a doofus and initially mis-spelled it (I have since returned and corrected the error).

It is Geminga.
