The Maunder Minimum

For the same reason was the period of the Maunder Minimum of low solar activity - where no sunspots have occurred - which is coincident with the Little Ice Age - a period in which enormous scientific and cultural development has occurred. During the Maunder Minimum, the extremely high solar cosmic-ray flux of that period gave us the greatest peace treaty of all times, the Treaty of Westphalia that still stands as the foundation for civilization. The period also gave us the great musical geniuses and scientific geniuses that are still admired today.
