SOMETHING odd is happening beneath the South Atlantic. It’s punching a hole in Earth’s radiation shield. It’s so bad, it’s killing satellites.
THERE’s a growing gap in the Earth’s defences.
It’s what gives us our north and south poles.
This powers our compasses.
It’s also a vital shield that protects us from harmful radiation constantly bombarding us from the Sun or deep space.
This weakening is most evident in one place. It’s a hole that reaches across the heart of South America, over the South Atlantic and into Africa.
It’s been dubbed the “South Atlantic Anomaly”.
It’s allowing more high-energy radiation to penetrate deeper through near orbit, the atmosphere and to our surface.
In recent decades it’s caused computers to crash on Shuttles and the International Space Station.
