# Does the Ozone Layer stop gamma rays?

Yes and no , but if the Gamma Rays if a few light years away it can waves and turn big, and in the next next your die but this has not happen yet we think in OOFMATION ANIMATION is that it is about 1000 year this could happen, but we don't know yet. Gamma-rays travel to us across vast distances of the universe, only to be absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere. ... A Gamma-ray burst could wipe out all living species on the planet Earth at any time with no warning and destroy the ozone layer in the process. There is no protection for the planet from this fate.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

In response to Nathan Soliman you are correct and some point incorrect, we are not safe, but if it very far away the Gamma Rays, we are Safe.

has a gamma ray ever hit earth before?

In 2012 researchers found evidence that our planet had been struck by a blast of radiation during the Middle Ages, but there was debate over what kind of cosmic event could have caused this.Jan 21, 2013

Interesting question... Do you think that there may have been life on Mars but Gamma Rays destroyed it due to Mars's atmosphere being removed?

- 3 months ago

that could happen

- 3 months ago

maybe mars has no atmosphere because of that

- 3 months ago

Well Mars have no atmosphere

- 2 months, 4 weeks ago

Mars used to have an atmosphere, but it was swept away after its magnetic field stopped

- 2 months, 4 weeks ago

why did it stop

- 2 months, 4 weeks ago

Well NASA Don't really know exaclty

- 2 months, 4 weeks ago

It is suspected that Mars's magnetic field weakened by a great amount as its crust cooled at a rapid rate.
