It was one more defeat in our long and losing battle to keep the Sun perfect, or, if not perfect, constant,

Overview

It was one more defeat in our long and losing battle to keep the Sun perfect, or, if not perfect, constant,

and if inconstant, regular. Why we think the Sun should be any of these when other stars are not is

more a question for social than for physical science.

John A. (“Jack”) Eddy

Delineator of the Maunder Minimum

On the human Idée fi xe as to why the Sun must be seen energetically as a linear entity.

Around 1904, Kapteyn noticed that the stars did not move randomly through space, but that their

movements had preferential directions... there was regularity in something astronomers had always

thought to be chaotic.

Adriaan Blaauw, emeritus director of the Kapteyn Institute, Groningen, Netherlands

On Jacob Cornelius Kapteyn’s discovery of star streaming: the concept of galactic rotation and so, proof

of some regularity in stellar behavior.
