Yeah, I think I posted something about this a couple of years back. But it's all I have right now. The magnetic poles on earth are starting to reverse. Maybe. It's just gotten a whole lot weaker in the past couple centuries. Nobody is really sure what that means. Except that Mars may have had an atmosphere. And, due to its weakened magnetic field, the entire atmosphere got blown away, voiding it of life.
