    Sun's Magnetic Field Will Flip Soon. Every 11 years or so, the two hemispheres of the sun reverse their polarity, creating a ripple effect that can be felt throughout the solar system. The sun is currently going through one of those flips in its cycle. That activity affects the Earth's magnetic field, which affects technology on Earth like GPS systems and power grids. The uptick in solar activity can also create brilliant auroras on Earth and on certain planets of the solar system.

Magnetic Yeast Only a few organisms can actively sense and utilize magnetic fields. Magnetotactic bacteria contain strings of iron-dense membrane-bound organelles filled with magnetic crystals called magnetosomes, which act like microscopic compasses. Bacteria that contain magnetosomes can detect the earth’s magnetic field, telling them which direction is up and helping them find oxygen closer to the surface of the water.
