The Earth’s magnetic field is the most important protective shield of our earthly home. This invisible construct that surrounds and penetrates our blue home planet shields us from the charged particles of the solar wind, which would otherwise fall on us unchecked. Essentially, one could say that if the Earth’s magnetic field did not exist, terrestrial life would never have been able to develop in its known form. But what would actually happen if the Earth’s magnetic shield were to undergo a drastic change? In fact, we know that such pole jumps have already occurred several times in the past. But how would a new pole reversal affect all of our lives? And even more: has such a process possibly already been set in motion? Together with you we’re looking for answers today!
