  • Pyramid of Giza and Its Electromagnetism

    scientists recently married physics and pyramid research to discover a connection between the pyramid’s structure and electromagnetism.

    Ah, the Great Pyramid of Giza. The oldest and last remaining Wonder of the Ancient Worlds. Just when we thought that we were perplexed enough about this structure, its engineering and construction, and its size and proportions, scientists recently married physics and pyramid research to discover a connection between the pyramid’s structure and electromagnetism.

  • Magnets Used in Hyperloop Trains

    Can you imagine a high-speed train that could connect you from Los Angeles to San Francisco in under 30 minutes? Elon Musk can.

    Musk – a billionaire entrepreneur, investor, and engineer – has proposed the idea for a “Hyperloop” train that would operate as fast as 700 miles-per-hour, revolutionizing the way people travel from place to place via railroad systems. It would serve as an alternative to air travel and,  interestingly enough, would revolve around electromagnetic levitation.

  • Magnetic Navigation in Fish

    Magnetic Navigation in fish

    When fish are born in coral reefs, they are often tiny and poor swimmers. Because of this, they are pushed away from the corals from which they are born weeks before they learn to swim effectively. Remarkably, 60% of these fish manage to make it back to their first homes despite their unfavorable beginnings.

  • NASA’s Parker Probe: Adventures to the Sun

    sun’s magnetic field

    “I really think these are transformative missions,” says Howard Singer, chief scientist at the Space Weather Prediction Center, of the three sun-focused missions occurring over the next few years. The Parker Probe, the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST), and the Solar Orbiter will embark on separate missions to create a better understanding of the star at the center of our system.
