Like the plot of a sci-fi B movie, something weird is happening deep underground where the constant spin of Earth's liquid metallic core generates an invisible magnetic force field that shields our planet from harmful radiation in space.

Awesome , If it wasn`t for the earth`s magnetic field we`d all be dead !!
Like always Earth provides us with everything we need , wish we could treat her better!
Is this the same thing as the Van Allen Belt ????

Yes, Suri, but magnetic storms can turn against us if we donīt care of the planet and also the trash we send to space.

I am glad you liked it my friends, thanks for noting and commenting.
