The Earth's Magnetic Field May Flip, And That Doesn't Sound So Good - Latest News

Earth’s magnetic field may not be flipping

We mentioned earlier that the magnetic field has had the same orientation for nearly 800,000 years, so this would seem like a rather dull period. But the reality is that the ... good news. In addition ... read more

Reconnection tames the turbulent magnetic fields around Earth

In this visualization, as the supersonic solar wind (yellow haze) flows around the Earth's magnetic field (blue wavy lines), it forms a highly turbulent boundary layer called the 'magnetosheath' (yell... read more

The Earth’s poles may be about to flip – and the consequences could be ‘dire’

Over the past 200 years, the Earth’s magnetic field has been getting weaker. Researchers believe that this could be a sign that the poles are about to flip – and the consequences could be “dire,” acco... read more
