So I heard that the Ozone Layer is a layer of gas in Earth's atmosphere. And I also heard once that the Ozone Layer is crucial in protecting life on Earth, as it blocks out harmful rays emitted by the Sun. But over the years, the Ozone layer is slowly degrading due to the constant emission of chemicals. That's straight forward stuff...
But I once heard that super sonic jets can also contribute to the degradation of the Ozone Layer. What!? I didn't know jets could do that! This is what I would like to know:
Is this claim true?
And if it is, how high up and fast do the jets have to be?
Also, how is this even possible?
Does the jet create strong winds to blow the Ozone Layer away or something? Any feedback would be highly appreciated, thanks!
