Numerical simulations to better understand the complete reversals of the geodynamo dipole more

Artist's impression of an early solar system: a sun with a disk in the background to the right, planetoids and a planet in the foreground to the left

The Sun’s planets and small objects have undergone substantial evolution. Deciphering the history of our cosmic home is not a simple task even though we now have access to a multitude of data gathered by space missions, remote observations, and laboratory studies of diverse samples. A significant fraction of materials available for the study of planetary bodies come from meteorites. more
