A certain type of communications -- very low frequency, or VLF, radio communications -- have been found to interact with particles in space, affecting how and where they move. At times, these interactions can create a barrier around Earth against natural high energy particle radiation in space.

NASA scientists have made another breakthrough discovery during its space exploration activity. The US space agency was able to detect a human-made barrier surrounding the Earth in the form of radio frequencies. What does space experts uncover in their latest finding and what it can contribute to Earth?

NASA is an independent agency of the United State government in charge of the civilian space program for aeronautics and aerospace research. For the past decades, the US space agency has been the eyes and ears of planet Earth in space. And throughout that period, they made numerous discovery and breakthrough findings that have been beneficial for space perception.

Up until now, NASA does not stop on their responsibility of sending mission on space and further understand the diversity of the galaxy. But, recent reports are now saying that the US space agency has uncovered a groundbreaking discovery surrounding the planet Earth.

According to PerfScience, NASA scientists have detected a barrier around the Earth that appears to be beneficial to the planet. NASA's Van Allen probes revealed that human activities are not the only factors that have physical and chemical impacts on Earth environment but also radio frequencies that are expanding into the outer space.

NASA scientists determined that very low frequency (VLF) radio communications are making interactions with space particles as per data captured by the probes. The interactions then create an artificial barrier that helps to block high-energy particle rays from the space. VLF communications are used by submarines to communicate and though it often sends out in a downward direction, the frequency is extending out into space that was frequently picked up by spacecraft.

Very low frequency (VLF) radio frequencies have been a common way of communications now than in the 60's as per reported by ScienceAlert. NASA scientists now confirm that these frequencies can manipulate movements of certain particles in outer space. With this, an anthropogenic or human-made space weather apparently is formed.

VLF radio communications have been seeping out into space without human knowing its benefits until NASA scientists uncover the mystery behind it. It has remained long enough in space and formed a giant protective bubble in the process. The protective bubble barrier now helps to prevent high-energy particle rays entering the Earth atmosphere that's beneficial to the environment.
