Modern Homo sapiens as a species have been around for about 195,000 to 200,000 years. Probably a hell of a lot longer as some of the evidence out
The Sun has been shining for all that time probably going through its solar cycle in exactly the same fashion as it does today, poles shifting every
11 years or so. I'm just wondering why you think we are entering uncharted territory regarding our Sun when one considers 200,000 years is nothing in
the grand scale of her life cycle. She's already 4.6 billion years old.
When the Sun is about 7 billion years old it will slowly start to change and will become bigger and cooler. By the time it is 10 billion years old it
will have changed into a red giant and its atmosphere will stretch out to near where the Earth is today.
Before that occurs i imagine we will be long gone as a species!
