Earth to Mars could become a half years
The magnetosphere of the Earth were formed holes that do not grow together, letting solar radiation.
NASA experts warn that in many respects the planet Earth to Mars could become a year and a half, according to the organization's website.
In the magnetosphere - the shell that protects the earth from solar radiation, formed hole. They do not grow together. They can penetrate through radiation, which destroys all life on planet Earth is surrounded by a magnetic shell, which serves as a shield against solar wind - streams of ionized particles accelerated to half a million kilometers per hour. If the shield is gone, the Earth will turn into a desert.
The small holes began to appear as early as mid-2008, and in December the same year, the satellites have found huge hole. hole width was four times larger than the diameter of our planet, and the length - seven times. After a year and a half, a huge amount of plasma to freely enter the atmosphere, suggest to NASA.
