Earth’s magnetic field flipped 42,000 years ago, creating a climate ‘disaster’

A reversal in Earth’s magnetic field hundreds of years in the past plunged the planet into an environmental disaster that will have resembled “a disaster movie,” scientists not too long ago found. 

Our planet‘s magnetic field is dynamic and, quite a few occasions, it has flipped — when the magnetic North and South Poles swap locations. In our electronics-dependent world, such a reversal may significantly disrupt communication networks.
