  3. 4 of the Greatest Scientific Magnet Developments of 2014

    4 of the Greatest Scientific Magnet Developments of 2014
    Magnets have been around for hundreds of years. The naturally occurring magnetic stone, lodestone, has been linked as far back as 600 B.C., and magnetic compasses appeared around 4th century B.C. China. Magnets and their uses have greatly evolved since those times, however. Now, magnets are stronger, more versatile and more common━appearing in almost every piece of technology that exists today. Looking back on 2014, we can’t help but remember some of the innovative and interesting magnetic developments that have happened. In honor of this past year, we have compiled a list of the most interesting magnetic developments of 2014. Continue reading →

  7. 5 of the Most Creative Uses of Magnets in 2014

    5 of the Most Creative Uses of Magnets in 2014
    We may hear about researchers studying some hyper-specific aspect of magnetism, and not realize the importance or real-life applications of that research. However, studying magnetism and transferring that knowledge into a real-life application has created some amazing things. For instance, what if Raymond Damadian never invented the magnetic resonance imaging machine, also known as MRI? Now, most innovative magnetic creations don’t necessarily start with their creator thinking of magnets. Often, it starts out with a problem and sometimes, after exploring several solutions, creative thinkers discover that magnets may be a viable solution. In this article, we are taking a look at the past year and highlighting the most creative uses of magnets that we’ve stumbled upon. Continue reading →

  10. Magnet Experiment: How Magnets Could Clean Up Oil Spills

    Magnet Experiment: How Magnets Could Clean Up Oil Spills
    Until we no longer rely on oil, it will still be pumped and shipped around the world. The ugly truth about that is that using oil can lead to messy spills that are damaging to the environment and wildlife living in the area. Plus, cleaning up oil spills while trying to preserve and help the ecosystem is a difficult task. One physicist named Arden Warner has been studying some possible, effective and non-damaging ways and he may have come up with the solution-magnets. We previously talked about how his method would use high powered magnets, but now you can see for yourself how the method would work with this simple science experiment. Continue reading →
