New research solves the mystery of magnetic moon rocks brought back on Apollo

Surrounding Earth is a powerful magnetic field created by swirling liquid iron in the planet's core. Earth's magnetic field may be nearly as old as the Earth itself – and stands in stark contrast to the Moon, which completely lacks a magnetic field today. But did the Moon's core generate a magnetic field in the past? In the 1980s, geophysicists studying rocks brought back by Apollo astronauts concluded the Moon once had a magnetic field that was as strong as Earth's. But a robust magneti...

Long Beach singer stars in West Coast premiere of ‘Birds in the Moon,” outdoors in Santa Monica

The 17th century English educator Charles Morton theorized that when the weather got too cold for swallows to live on the Earth, they flew to the Moon and then returned in the spring. According to, Morton explained in his “Compendium physicae,” that the birds didn’t hide in their nests, in other parts of trees, or at the bottom of bodies of water when the weather got cold. He argued that they must be on the Moon because the astronomer Galileo had found mountains and seas there a...
