Applegate effect

The applegate effect is a funny theoretical effect to do with electromagnetism and twisting.

It seems to be something to do with sunspot rotation, the rotation of stars, and the degree of gravitational flattening the star experiences, but we can't be sure how much of this is fundamental to the effect, and how much is due to this application of it.

This has now been detected in a star. see the news report.
