Happy 116-th birthday, Jan Oort!
Jan Hendrik Oort was a Dutch astronomer who confirmed that the Milky Way rotates in its own plane around the center of the galaxy. In 1950, he suggested that comets came from a common region of the Solar System (now called the Oort cloud).

Did Earth's magnetic field collapse for 2 hours on April 23?

Short answer … no.

The erroneous story, which is still spreading, originated with a glitch in a computer simulation.
