I discussed this article with my environmental science students. It shows how old data can be merged with new observations to build new findings. The article "Scientists Visualize the Sun's Mysteries Using 400 Years of Solar Observations" is on Space.com at https://www.space.com/42702-400-years-solar-observations.html. My students compare this invesitigation to the use of old atmospheric condition records and ice cores in studying climate change.
