Earths magnetic field


Recommended Posts

Recently research showed that an anomalous "hole" in the magnetic field of Earth is gradually growing and moving.  The fact is that the magnetosphere surrounding the Earth is a real trap for protons and neutrons and, which does not allow streams of cosmic particles to approach the Earth. As the magnetic field is perhaps the main reason that life is generally possible on our planet, what will happen if the hole destroys the magnet field? Is it actually possible?

No, it's not really possible, it is just moving and getting slowly bigger at altitude.
