Are the poles reversing? Earth’s magnetic field 10 times more volatile than expected

A study by researchers from the UK and US shows that the Earth’s magnetic field, which protects it from the Sun’s destructive solar flares, may change direction 10 times faster than previously thought.

The study shines light on the liquid iron flowing almost 2,000 miles below the Earth’s surface and how it influences the movement of the Earth’s geomagnetic field.

The Earth’s molten metal outer core creates electric currents that charge the planet’s magnetic field.

The magnetic field is crucial to life on Earth as not only does it help us with things such as navigational systems, but also protects us from radiation from outer space.
