A team of scientists has proposed a novel model for the generation of a global magnetic field in the ancient moon, which could help solve a decades-old mystery about the presence of magnetized rocks on the moon’s surface.
The inner core of the Earth is simultaneously melting and freezing due to circulation of heat in the overlying rocky mantle, according to new research from the University of Leeds, UC San Diego and the Indian Institute of Technology.
400 years of discussion and weâ€™re still not sure what creates the Earthâ€™s magnetic field, and thus the magnetosphere, despite the importance of the latter as the only buffer between us and deadly solar wind of charged particles (made up of electrons and protons). New research raises question marks about the forces behind the magnetic field and the structure of Earth itself.
