NASA has spotted a man-made barrier around the Earth that prevents high-energy space radiation from reaching the planet. VLF (Very Low Frequency) radio communications interact with particles in space, affecting how and where they move. These interactions can create a barrier around the Earth against natural high energy particle radiation in space.
The bubble barrier can be seen by a spacecraft above the Earth’s surface, such as NASA’s Van Allen Probes. It is speculated that without the man-made VLF transmissions, the boundary of the barrier would have probably been closer to the Earth.
This VLF transmissions barrier can serve as a way to remove excess radiation from the near-Earth environment.
Wow this is amazing. This reminded me of Men In Black III. But seriously, pretty amazing how things done can unknowingly be helpful to the humans.
