True but a comet, asteroid or even magnetic flare from the sun that passed close enough would certainly still have an effect though we would expect due to the natural molton iron core of our planet with it's differential rotation speed generating our strong field that it would likely be far more resiliant than that of Mars.


Mars of course did once have a similar but smaller core and it also once generated it's own stronger field but other than natural cooling it look's like something disrupted mars core sufficiantly to almost totally kill off this generation.

There is a valid argument that something may have slammed into mars in the past, this caused the internal molton core to litterally be smashed off from the planet's centre and may have been the reason for the vast Olympus Monze feature, the largest known volcano in the solar system and even more strangely so for the size of Mars itself is much smaller than earth.

It may also have been a geologically relatively recent event because though mars is more or less geologically stable it still has erosion.

Though it may also have been multiple strikes over time and that could simply be a giant volcano.

This site is interesting though since it's founder has now passed away and new finding's are coming in all the time it may need someone like him again.
metaresearch.org...
A brilliant scientist with a rogue theory and not scared of going out on a limb about it, he believed that mars once the moon of another planet which was destroyed and whose remains now form the asteroid belt (partial remains as most would have been catapulted away and entered eliptical orbits etc).

So yes a close enough pass by any sufficiantly large body or magnetic field would disrupt our own planets magnetosphere, it is the same principle exactly as passing two magents near to one another and studying there magnetic flux, they will bend and deform in the presence of one another and merge just as this comets did with mars but of course our planet being larger and with a much larger core would probably recover and suffer less if any lasting effects of this passage.

Poo! You're no fun. At least give me some 15 or 20 minutes to enjoy my Ariel Apocalypse fantasy before you come in here and shoot it down with reality.


Maybe the science guys should give the doom guys 24 hours to go nuts before setting the record straight


In all seriousness. Very interesting Op.

Electric Universe proponents should have a field day with that, looking forward to what they say.

Pun intended? "Field" day...

But you know EU believers hedge their bets so that whatever outcome of whatever situation occurs, EU predicted it. It'd an incredible theory. . Shame it's all total bollocks eh?

The thing is, the Earth's core is very large. Which means it has a proportional inertia - resistance to acceleration. In other words, impact events would need to be really strong to affect the core.

Try picturing the force it would require for an asteroid to knock the Moon off. For comparison, the Core is 3/4 the size of the moon.
