“The iron catastrophe was a major event early in the history of Earth and the original accretion of the Earth's material into a spherical mass is thought to have resulted in a relatively uniform composition. While residual heat from the collision of the material that formed the Earth was significant, heating from radioactive materials in this mass gradually increased the temperature until a critical condition was reached. As material became molten enough to allow movement, the denser iron and nickel, evenly distributed throughout the mass, began to migrate to the center of the planet to form the core. The gravitational potential energy released by the sinking of the dense globules, along with any cooler denser solid material is thought to have been a runaway process, increasing the temperature of the proto-planet above the melting point of most components, resulting in the rapid formation of a molten iron core covered by a deep global silicate magma. This event, an important process of planetary differentiation, occurred at about 500 million years into the formation of the planet. This large spinning mass of super-hot metal is responsible for the magnetosphere, which protects the Earth from solar wind and the most harmful components of solar radiation coming from our Sun. The magnetosphere protects both Earth's atmosphere and life to the present day and distinguishes the planet from its close celestial neighbor, Mars, which no longer has a significant magnetic field nor comparable atmosphere. The term CATASTROPHE is, here, in the mathematical sense of "A LARGE, SUDDEN CHANGE OR DISCONTINUITY", as contrasted with "A DISASTER", because this event was necessary for life to emerge and evolve on Earth: without it, Earth's atmosphere would have been, as on Mars, stripped away long before the present epoch.”
