Humans and the Earth's Magnetic Field

Scientists have speculated for a long time that animals may use the earth’s magnetic field for various tasks.  For example, birds use the Earth’s magnetic field for flight navigation across great distances; also, dogs use the Earth’s magnetic field to orient themselves north/south when they urinate.  Despite the research findings, researchers still do not understand how animals engage the Earth’s magnetic field.

For many decades, researcher’s have theorized that humans have the same ability to detect geological magnetic fields, but until recently it has only been a theory.  In 2016, the California Institute for Technology professor and researcher, Joe Kirschvink, made a breakthrough in this field of study.
