Today I learned that zip unpacking requires random access. So it can't be used with streaming in node.js without buffering the whole file. My use case involves downloading data file using the master.zip from a GitHub repo URL. Can I get a different archive format? One that is compatible with streaming and pipe in node?
**How does Earth sustain its magnetic field?**
"Life as we know it could not exist without Earth's magnetic field and its ability to deflect dangerous ionizing particles. It is continuously generated by the motion of liquid iron in Earth's outer core, a phenomenon called the geodynamo. Despite its fundamental importance, many questions remain unanswered about…"

But 5G doesn't give you cancer. It won't make you sick. And...god, I am getting stupider just thinking about typing this, coronavirus is not a false-flag op to disguise the illnesses that 5G is secretly creating.
