New Delhi: Solar wind May cause Mars According to a computer simulation study, it lost its atmosphere, which confirms the belief that planets need to protect their magnetic fields to prevent such harmful radiation in order to sustain life.
Although factors such as moderate heat, humid air, and the presence of liquid water determine whether a planet can survive, the study, published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, points out that the planet’s ability to generate a magnetic field around it is a neglected one. Aspect.
Scientists Arnab Basak and Dibyendu Nandi from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Kolkata said that these magnetic fields surrounding the planet can act like an umbrella, separating the atmosphere from the sun’s ultrafast plasma wind.
They said that on the earth, the geodynamic mechanism has produced the earth̵
In the current study, scientists have simulated two Red planet -One considers young Mars with an intact magnetosphere, and the other considers planets without this force field.
Simulations have shown that in young Mars, the magnetosphere may act as a shield, preventing the solar wind from getting too close to the planet’s atmosphere and protecting it.
Without an internal magnetosphere, the researchers say that the solar wind magnetic field may first spread around, then slide across Mars, taking away the planet’s atmosphere, and eventually eroding the atmosphere completely.
They said these findings confirm the belief that the magnetosphere around the planet plays a vital role in determining its ability to sustain life.
Scientists added that, alternatively, planets that lose their magnetic fields will eventually become desolate by losing their atmosphere.
Researchers believe that this study is NASAJames Webb Space Telescope and ISROExoWorlds mission.
