It turns out that this giant bubble prevents charged radioactive particles from entering Earth’s atmosphere. Various nuclear explosions over the years have resulted in the formation of radioactivity belts around the Earth, which this barrier has pushed further than they were in the 1960s.“A number of experiments and observations have shown that, under the right conditions, radiocommunication signals in the VLF frequency range can in fact affect the properties of the high-energy radiation environment around the Earth.” Phil Erickson, deputy director of the MIT Haystack Observatory, said, according to NASA.
This is because VLF frequencies create human-induced “space weather”. Unfortunately, according to a new article by Scientific alert, the barrier does not solve the problem of radioactive particles damaging Earth’s satellites.
NASA says tests are underway to see if VLF transmissions can be used to remove excess radiation surrounding Earth.

Scientists find out what could be a parallel universe where time goes back and signs of life on Venus, so an artificial barrier surrounding the Earth fighting off radiation shouldn’t be too surprising. There might even be a galactic federation that won’t let humans in yet.. Maybe there will be a change of mind when they see the Cool Earth Barrier that humans have made!
