The modern man evolved from the species Homo sapiens. However, like Homo sapiens, some other human species existed on Earth and became extinct. This includes the Neanderthals, a human species that was once found in most of Europe.
There is ongoing research into why this species became extinct. Now an international team of researchers has done research on this. He said the decline in the Earth’s magnetic field and changes in poles must have affected the species.
Such an event took place 42,000 years ago and its effects lasted for a thousand years. Researchers say that such an event occurs every two to three million years. Earth’s magnetic field is still weakening.
Therefore, researchers believe that the time for the change of poles may be approaching. Earth’s magnetic field is important for the survival of humans and other organisms. It protects ozone layer from solar storms, space radiation as well as harmful radiation. This area is the highest in the arid region and sometimes it changes.
It can be very harmful even when it is in a weak state before it is destroyed. In modern times this can adversely affect the functioning of equipment. In particular, the work of satellites and spacecraft orbiting in space can be disrupted. As the magnetic field weakens, so does the atmosphere. As a result, many species of mammals became extinct. Neanderthals may have lost their lives for similar reasons.
