Did you receive any text message that potentially dangerous cosmic rays will be entering the Earth from Mars between 10:30 pm and 3:30 am tonight and users should switch off their mobile devices because of deadly radiation?
As the website Hoax-Slayer.com notes: “Depending on their type, cosmic rays come from outside our solar system or from the sun. They do not come from Mars or any other planet. And, the Earth’s atmosphere largely protects us from cosmic rays.
There are no reports about this supposed threat on BBC news. Nor is there any evidence that cosmic rays could somehow make cell phones dangerous. Sharing this silly nonsense will help nobody, Hoax-Slayer added.
If you happen to receive the hoax message, please do not share it with others. And please let the sender know that the warning is a hoax.
And please share this article so others will know.
