Earth’s magnetic field could flip within a human lifetime
Imagine the world waking up one morning to discover that all compasses pointed south instead of north.
It’s not as bizarre as it sounds. Earth’s magnetic field has flipped – though not overnight – many times throughout the planet’s history. Its dipole magnetic field, like that of a bar magnet, remains about the same intensity for thousands to millions of years, but for incompletely known reasons it occasionally weakens and, presumably over a few thousand years, reverses direction.
Now, a new study by a team of scientists from Italy, France, Columbia University and the University of California, Berkeley, demonstrates that the last magnetic reversal 786,000 years ago actually happened very quickly, in less than 100 years – roughly a human lifetime.

Find out more here. 

This is happening.  Not in a conspiracy-theory, end of the world way.  We can prepare for it, but it’s definitely happening within our lifetimes or our grandchildren’s.(I’m curious, has anyone studied whether this is a purely Earth phenomenon, or our entire solar system “flipping”, too?)
