      NASA Science News for April 3, 2000

      Like blood pulsing in an artery, newly discovered currents
      of gas beat deep inside the Sun, speeding and slackening
      every 16 months. The solar "heartbeat" throbs in the same
      region of the Sun suspected of driving the 11-year cycle of
      solar eruptions. Scientists are hopeful that this pulse can help
      them unravel the origin and operation of the solar cycle.
