Some Humans Can Detect the Earth's Magnetic Field

Writing in the journal eNeuro, the researchers said: “Given the known presence of highly evolved geomagnetic navigation systems across the animal kingdom, it is perhaps not surprising that we might retain at least some functioning components, especially given the nomadic hunter-gatherer lifestyle of our not-too-distant ancestors.

“The full extent of this inheritance remains to be discovered.”

It was recently revealed that the Earth’s magnetic field may actually be shifting, with the true North Pole moving by as much as 34 miles a year — but that doesn’t stop the field protecting us from the excesses of the sun’s magnetic storms and the problems that would otherwise be caused by solar flares.
