Historic discovery of solar seismic waves after 40 year search reveals the sun's core is rotating four times faster than its surface

Scientists have detected ‘convincing proof’ of an elusive type of seismic wave in the sun, helping to solve a decades-long mystery on the movement of material at the core.
While experts have long suspected gravity waves could be a key component of the core’s rotation, they’ve so far been unable to pinpoint them, despite four decades of searching.
Now, using ESA and NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, scientists have finally found evidence of these low-frequency waves, revealing the core spins much faster than the sun’s surface.
