The Earth’s magnetic field is like an invisible force field around the planet, it protects living things on planet from dangerous solar rays by repelling charged particles. Earth’s magnetic field is not constant and it is continuously changing. Undeniably, our planet’s past comprises hundreds of global magnetic reverses, where south and north magnetic poles switch places. And scientists are sure that another one of these swaps is about to happen. But the bigger question is when exactly will it happen?
According to researchers, during this occurrence the magnetic field won’t fall back to a complete zero, but will undergo a weaker and more composite form. During this reversal there is a possibility of simultaneous existence of multiple “north” and “south” magnetic poles and it may fall to 10% of the current-day strong point. Research shows that geomagnetic reverses happen a few times every million years on average. Nonetheless, the interval among reversals is very uneven and can range up to tens of millions of years.
