The electromagnetic field around the Earth would collapse and all life burns to a crisp by solar radiation. If that sounds like a bad science fiction movie, “The Core” with Aaron Eckhart and Hillary Swank came out in 2003.

How does a 20-year-old science fiction movie stack up against today’s science news?
