    earthquakes on earth triggered by sun

    I thought this was an interesting hypothesis.

    Powerful eruptions on the Sun might trigger earthquakes
    Ground-shaking earthquakes occur all across the globe. And according to a new study, many of them might be triggered by the Sun.
    The moment an instant lasted forever, we were destined for the leading edge of eternity.

    That idea has been around. It isn't very widely accepted. Note that the paper you quoted is in Scientific Reports, which is a very low impact journal where people publish things that they want to publish even though they can't get it into a high impact journal. I think that probably if that was accepted, we would see people developing systems to try to predict earthquakes based on solar activity (it would be great, because we can measure solar activity and hence could make predictions), but we don't. I think it's notable that they have a hypothesis for a mechanism, so it's worth thinking about it, but I don't think they've clearly shown a link. If they did, I think it would be in Nature itself.
    As above, so below

    Universe today covered it as well, years ago.
