    According to Astrobio.net as the Moon passes through the Earth's
    magnetic field, it receives static electricity. These electrical charges
    are projected to start increasing in intensity by the year 2012.
    Since NASA has decided to attempt to make a long standing presence on
    the Moon by the year 2020; this may affect Moon Missions.

    How is the Earth's magnetic field different from other planets? And how
    might this event effect us?

    One thing to remember before we get our hopes up is that it's a very weak field. I wonder, however, what would happen if we found a way to tap it. Then we'd have a form of enery other than solar and nuclear out there. That would be nice.
