Aurora Borealis Earth's Magnetic Field 


NEWSWEEK The shifting of the earth’s magnetic poles will leave civilization more vulnerable to the coming changes in our sun. Like most planets in our solar system, the Earth has its own magnetic field. Thanks to its largely molten iron core, our planet is, in fact, a bit like a bar magnet. It has a north and south magnetic pole, separate from the geographic poles, with a field connecting the two. This field protects our planet from radiation and is responsible for creating the northern and southern lights—spectacular events that…

Scientists Discover That Humans Can Sense Earth’s Magnetic Field

Researchers have discovered that humans can detect changes in Earth-strength magnetic fields. INTERESTING ENGINEERING Scientists from Caltech and The University of Tokyo have determined that many humans are able to unconsciously detect Earth’s magnetic field. The new study shows that human brain waves respond to changes in Earth-strength magnetic fields. The research team led by geoscientist Joseph Kirschvink (BS, MS ’75) and neuroscientist Shin Shimojo at Caltech as well as neuroengineer Ayu Matani at the University of Tokyo suggest evidence that there is a new human sense they are calling magnetoreception. Animals…

NASA: Earth’s Magnetic poles are ‘Switching’

The US space agency confirmed fears that we may be heading towards an extraordinary event, which would see compasses point SOUTH if the magnetic poles shift.Climate researchers believe we are heading towards a reversal of the planet’s magnetic field, an event that has happened before and has been attributed to wiping out the Neanderthal species.Bruce Jakosky, MAVEN principal investigator at the University of Colorado, Boulder, said when the switch does take place, the Earth’s magnetic field which prevents the Sun’s dangerous radiation getting through, would be neutralised for around 200…
