South Atlantic Anomaly: Study reveals magnetic pole ‘wobble’ has been growing for 1000 years

FYI.

South Atlantic Anomaly: Study reveals magnetic pole ‘wobble’ has been growing for 1000 years:

SOMETHING odd is happening beneath the South Atlantic. It’s punching a hole in Earth’s radiation shield. It’s so bad, it’s killing satellites.

THERE’s a growing gap in the Earth’s defences.

We’ve known for more than a century that our planet’s magnetic field has been weakening.

It’s what gives us our north and south poles.

This powers our compasses.

It’s also a vital shield that protects us from harmful radiation constantly bombarding us from the Sun or deep space.

This weakening is most evident in one place. It’s a hole that reaches across the heart of South America, over the South Atlantic and into Africa.

It’s been dubbed the “South Atlantic Anomaly”.

It’s allowing more high-energy radiation to penetrate deeper through near orbit, the atmosphere and to our surface.

In recent decades it’s caused computers to crash on Shuttles and the International Space Station.
