Do other planets have magnetic fields like earth?
Some other planets have magnetic fields, and some don't! The cause of magnetic fields on other planets is somewhat mysterious. Our moon currently has no magnetic field, but permanently magnetized rocks have been found on the moon, leading scientists to believe that at one time, it did have a magnetic field.
