Earth's early magnetic field stronger than previously thought: Study
Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 21 (ANI): The earth's invisible yet vital magnetic field exists as a result of hot molten iron flowing through its outer core. It is one of the primary factors that made our planet conducive for harbouring life. The magnetic fulfils its protective role by shielding the earth from harmful cosmic and solar radiations.
