What if the Earth’s magnetic field were to flip? This would mean that the north and south poles would be ‘switched’ into each other’s places. Well, surprise, surprise: this has occasionally happened in the past, and can happen yet again, earlier than we would have thought. The dipole magnetic field of our planet remains about

The magnetic field generated around planet Earth is paramount for life to be sustained. The field prevents harmful solar radiation from reaching the atmosphere. Scientists are forever monitoring the changes happening around the earth. In so doing, they found that the magnetic field has been decreasing in strength faster and faster over time. Could this
