'Magnetic' Discovery May Reveal Why Earth Supports Life and Mars Doesn't
Earth's magnetic field, which protects the planet from harmful blasts of solar radiation, is much older than scientists had previously thought. This invisible, protective shield likely existed shortly after the planet formed; a finding that could shed light on why Earth is habitable and Mars is not. Earth's magnetic field helped make life on the planet possible. Without our magnetic field, solar winds would strip away the planet's atmosphere and oceans.

Protective Magnetic Fields Increase the Chance for Life on Earth-Like Planets
A new study from the the University of Washington details how Earth-like planets orbiting close to small stars may have magnetic fields that protect them from stellar radiation and help maintain surface conditions that could be conducive to life. A planet’s magnetic field emanates from its core a
How Earth’s magnetic field is changing | EarthSky.org
Data from a trio of satellites show rapid local changes in Earth's magnetic field. The cause is likely accelerations in the flow of liquid iron near Earth's core.
A Timelapse Of Our Planet's Surprisingly Turbulent Magnetic Field
The ESA's SWARM trio of satellites are up-and-running. Here's a sweet animation put together using its first set of high-resolution scans showing the most recent changes in the magnetic field that protects our planet.
New Study Shows How Rapidly Earth's Magnetic Field Is Changing
New research has shown in the most detail yet how rapidly Earth's magnetic field - which acts like a shield to protect us from harsh solar winds and cosmic radiation - is changing, getting weaker over some parts of the world, and strengthening over others.
Is Earth's Magnetic Field Ready to Flip? - Universe Today
Recent data from the ESO's trio of Swarm satellites point to a weakening of the Earth's magnetic field as well as variations in field strength across the planet in recent years.
Earth magnetic shield is older than previously thought
Researchers have revealed that the Earth's magnetic field is 550 million years older than previously believed.
Hidden Magnetic Portals Around Earth | wordlessTech
According to NASA, Jack Scudder from the University of Iowa, has found "hidden portals on Earth's magnetic field creating an uninterrupted path leading from our own planet to the sun."
