Wandering through the realms of the cosmos, pondering its huge vastness

Hoax Alert: Cosmic Rays from Mars Entering Earth

There have been rumors circulating that cosmic rays from Mars are entering Earth tonight so we need to switch off our phones, or put them away from us.

Tonight 12:30 am to 3:30 am cosmo rays entering earth from mars. So switch off your mobile at night. Don’t keep your cell with you & put it away while you are sleeping because they are too much dangerous rays: NASA informs BBC NEWS. Pls spread this news.

The message above is clearly nothing more than just another HOAX. I don’t know why people are circulating panic messages such as this to disturb the lives of other people. From what I have noticed, this message has been circulating since 2008 and it suddenly reappeared today, 6 April 2012. I also received text messages containing this false information and saw similar Facebook posts.

I did my own research and I have found no credible reports that confirm the claims in the warning message. There are no references to such a threat listed on credible scientific websites. I also checked the NASA and BBC news today to see if they have posted something like this. Fortunately, both have never said such a thing and will never probably produce a similar baseless statement.

Despite the claim in the message, there are several reasons to say that this information is untrue.

First, Mars could not emit harmful radiation because it is not a star. Cosmic rays are emitted by stars. i.e bodies that are undergoing nuclear reactions that is fusion (as occurs in our sun) or fission (as occurs in nuclear reactors). Mars is neither. It is a planet that just reflects sunlight. It cannot emit cosmic radiation.

Next, with regards to these rays the earth’s atmosphere is capable of taking care of them so no need to worry. The magnetosphere absorbs and protects us from the sun’s harmful radiation. Whatever remains is too feeble to affect any thing as far as earth.

The Earth’s magnetosphere prevents most of the particles from the Sun, carried in the solar wind, from hitting the Earth. Image credit: milesmathis.com

Another thing is that we are actually hit by cosmic rays every day — all day (and night too). If it was going to hurt your cell, then it would have already fried it by now.

Sometimes magnetic storms on the sun will fry the electronics of satellites in orbit, and may also blow out the power grid in high latitudes near the Earth’s magnetic poles, but other than static, I don’t see what it might do to your cell phones.

So, to anyone who will receive this kind of message, please think it over and help educate others. 🙂 Spreading dubious and unsubstantiated warnings such as this is counterproductive and is unlikely to help anyone.

  3. I don’t know the agenda of these people running such hoax… But it has again resurfaced just last night, my friend sent the text message to me and all of the folks where I live, and most of them, specially my friend’s kid brother, got really concerned and scared… So I gave a bit of lecture on space science, from the little knowledge I have, and showed clips from a documentary… Good thing it gave them a bit of assurance that nothing wrong is going to happen… And from MARS? Really? Maybe if it exploded, then it might emit those so called cosmic rays…. tskkkk…

    Haha! Thanks. I don’t know who has the time to create such hoax messages and then forward it to others.

    The other innocent people who doesn’t know if it’s true or not, just forward it to help others.
    Such a waste of time.

    Something tells me this might not be true for today but it may come when we least expect it. Never ignore such cus this could be to test our faith. Pls let us pray always.

  8. There are no such things as, the planet emitts cosmetic/cosmo ray,instead they do but the magnetosphere eradicates the hamful cosmo rays entering the earth, the whole things taks place in the stars and the sun because it it acumulates a vast and varying gases, so keep calmn ain’t nothing is goina happen to you8-).

      Why is this “cosmic ray” only affect phones what about the other gadgets.
      how could common radiation of the spreading of the parts of atoms affect this/these device/s (phone).
      cosmic ray is just like the radiation of an X-ray

    NIGERIA!, MY COUNTRY, WHAT IS HAPENING TO OUR EDUCATION SECTOR? Hawkers submerge the nation now in place of students( our nation’s future hope), one reason observed; some of the schools handed back to the churches politically by governments are now victim of doom and unless they take them back from the ‘BOKO HARAMISTS’ so called churches. The churches are more greedy now than any other group you can think of. Let us look into these schools and their managers or managements before they creple our nation for selfish reasons. The so called principals/teachers chose to receive their salaries from the management and the students’ parents and guidiance. Take Stape or else GOD WILL INTERVAIN against the church.

  21. Well, well, well. If I receive one, similar messages above. Then, I know how to react since you proved that was hoax. So Mars cosmic rays exist but not on our phones. The possibility that may come to reality if me and my phone is both on the outer space. You know, I’m dreaming about being an austronaut one day.

    I think these fake messages are part of a big survey or test to see how far or how big of a lie can be made and spread all over the world even though there is no fact attached to it, other than BBC and NASA without even an attachment to either of their sites. It’s really scary what kind of rubbish people will actually believe without even questioning. I wonder what kind of sick organization is behind this.

    Maybe the person circulating the message is planning something to someone and the person is thinking if that someone turned off his phone last night, then he/she wouldn’t have a chance to ask for help or delay its chances because kelangan pa nia i-turn on celphone niya.
    Anyway, I knew the news to be hoax the moment the news was passed on to me. The person who originated the news is pathetic. Must be another Twilight fan.

    This is nothing but a theoritical error. The person putting such an informatioin on net is perplexed, and am sure such a person is a non-academic student. How on earth can the mars emit cosmic rays. The mars is neither a star nor a nuclear reactor, so it cant emit any type of ray. Also the cosmic hardly enter earth. This is because the mixtures of protective gases up there in the stratosphere is much…..are we talking of the magnetosphere or the ozone or the others…so no how the cosmic rays will have an effect on us. Thanks

    Its just so unfortunate why people perish becos they lack information…if mars emits this cosmic rays,every living things on this earth will perish bcos the magnetosphere plays a. Greater role on the earths clux,so it will be wise on how people carry out their fake rumors to achieve their dirty attitudes.

    From the foregoing among others, it is obvious that spreading false rumours capable of inducing fears and making peoples’ hearts unsettled is a satanic strategy to deprive people of inner peace and serenity. Lets stop cooperating with satan in his three fold mission. Thanks for your enlightenment.

    Thank God for google, because not all of us can be fool again. I also received the text message from a concern brother on 15/08/12 although i’ve even slept off , only to wake up around 2:50am and saw the message. I just ignore it and search the web for the meaning in the morning. Only to stumble on this page which educate me more on the issue.

    Actually we all knew that comic ray is real and i think the government most have to do something about it so is not just a rumor i got the information last night but i never off my cell phone but nothing happend so no cos for alarm

    August 16, 2012 at 12:36 pm

  121. But our network provider let us know that before a call go to another fone the call will appear on the system,why they can’t stop that kind rubish?even if the news is real is suppose to come from our service provider,I use this time to say those behind the rumour will suffer unrest in there live Amen
    I now realise the meaning of the sign we use to hear when I was kid that the 666 mark will appear in our hands the sign is our mobile fones since will started using fones in this nation or in the world rather we always hear panic news.thanks

    The best way to stop these kind of messages that could lead to many premature dealth is ” when govt frown at any of such”. The commucation industries should fetch out anyone being d 1st 2 compose such a deadly message that lack merit. But unfortunately, since comm industry on d other hand are making billions of naira within just few minute via d messages, they dont care about it. Who knows weda they have hands in it? My fellow 9ja let’s wise up nd stop enriching these 419s. Simply igore any1 requsting u 2 post others message dat u know notin about. Be wise!

    I believe the originator of the rumour about cosmic rays hitting the atmosphere are not only carlous but are also unreasonable.The information mostly affect the less developed country who are not only suffering from financial and abject poverty but also lack of technological information. These people indirectly has violently violate the Right of those that has lost a huge sum of money to this scandalous information by switching off their phones and those who are ignorantly helping spreading the rumour vesatiosly created by these faceless figure by using their hard earned money in sending text messages to their loved ones. The worst part of it is that our government are not bothered or they are victim too.Imagine how do you explain making a call to the Minister of Technology between the period specified by these nefarious character just to know he had actually switch off his own phone for fear of cosmic rays .

    August 16, 2012 at 11:09 am


    Its quiet disgusting that unconfirmed rumors can be carried by thousands of people.
    I receive calls from different part of the state warning not power on mobile phones at the stipulated time 12:30 to 03:30 based on the so called COSMIC RAYS.
    Though I didn’t sleep, rather I was awake to see what is going to happen and how its going to affect the mobile may be it will gut fire or what. But its quite unfortunate that we don’t carry out research before publicizing any information on air via electronic whatever.
    But thanks to the scientist researcher who made us to understand what cosmic rays is all about.
    My beloved brethren be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. Cheers…………..

    The rumour making the rounds about the possibility of cosmic rays reaching planet earth between 12:30am and 3:30am today is a news that should be rejected by all in all totality. Ask yourself these few questions and attempt to answer them: (1) Is Mars a planet or a star? (2) What is the function of the magnetosphere? The answers to these questions proves beyond doubt that this rumour is not true. This is because cosmic rays are emitted ONLY by stars and Mars is not a star but a planet meaning therefore that it CANNOT emit cosmic rays. Planet Mars only radiates the sun’s says, it DOES NOT and CANNOT emit cosmic rays. Secondly, even if Mars emits cosmic rays like the stars do, the magnetosphere is there to stop the rays from reaching earth in any significant amount. The originators of this rumour must have forgotten that cosmic rays are regular ‘visitor’ to earth but that there intensity is always been significantly reduced before reaching earth. I think this is one strategy by telecom service providers to sell out there bandwidth

    August 16, 2012 at 6:17 am

  201. I really think this cosmic ray is happening tonite, but i checked some websites which said cosmic rays are only emmited from the stars and not from mars cause mars is just a planet that reflets sunlight and cannot emit cosmic radiation. Also we are hitted by cosmic radiation everyday so if it causes any harm it would have happened a long time ago. But it is good 2 b cautious so switch off ur phones. Thanks.

    Hmm! You know what guys, is always good at times to be smart. But come to think of it in another area of concentration could this be a secret work from God? That was intentionally set to put people in some kind of ah test to show and tell that his capable of doing things that we though are not posible. For all he owns and created the planets so he can desired to give any of them life and ability to do and undo This is wired. Climate changes rapidly, global warming so high. So we should expect somefing freaky than mars emitting COSMIC RAY or cosmetic rays. Well i should add here that (…this same ray we talking about here is the same we traditionalist rap ourself up with in meditation as the journey to the outer space “cosmic realm” into the great universe. So this ray is also like energy to us when converted properly… ) Now when “END TIME” as set on, alot of things are happening like micro-chips that have to be implemented in the fore head or hand before one could be able to buy and sell, please what this all about and why chip(666) on our head before exchanges. Men! am sucked and stuck in america says no immigrant or migraters are allowed to be out of there country without the mark(666) i mean micro-chip sorry to name. So please i need more enlightenment on this guy. Sorry for change of discussion we are still on the same matter all is ah Sighs!!!

    This rumour is being spread by disgruntled elements. The rumour which started since 2008 is baseless as there is no material facts contained in it. We have taken cognizance of the fact that there is global climate change but it has nothing to do with rays from mars entering the earth.

    Instead of atmosphere of panic and fear while can’t we result to prayer , I know most of us never do night vigil , here is time to humble, pray and seek the face of God , forgiveness of sins . Instead spreading dubious and fearful message about ( either true or not I don’t know) cosmic rays ,let share the message of kingdom of God . It’s certain that Jesus Christ is coming back again . Are u ready , let pray tonight as that God wash us clean by your blood and make us worthy to enter your kingdom , have mercy on us , O Lord , in Jesus Christ name, Amen .Let come up higher tonight in prayer and holiness and obedient to God now and forever.

    August 16, 2012 at 5:06 am

  279. Chukwu success paul

    This is a world wide rumour and it affects the people as a whole. Making them to start asking questions that they never intend asking. If this is true, why would magnetosphere be there? Because we are been made to understand that this MAGNETOSPHERE protects the EARTH from a harmful radiation from the sun. If there has not been any OZONE LAYER the Earth would have been suffering the heat from the sun. So , i strongly believe that the Earth will suffer no harm from this COSMIC RAYS and is a false rumour to say that the earth will undergo such. There by causing people to panic for their lives. With no doubt in me, i believe what the earth can undergo and not such like COSMIC RAYS.

  308. It is funny how some Nigerians don’t think before doing things.
    I suspect BULK SMS is really cheap to the extent that rumors are been sent anyhow.
    The first thing was don’t wear RED, and now its COSMIC.
    BTW, thanks to this article posted, as I now know its a Huge rumour, cos I even searched through BBC and nothing of such.

    • Hi Ronald. Please read the article again. It says that, “…with regards to these [cosmic] rays the earth’s atmosphere is capable of taking care of them so no need to worry. The magnetosphere absorbs and protects us from the sun’s harmful radiation. Whatever remains is too feeble to affect any thing as far as earth.”
