  • Exploring the Shelf Life of Your Magnets: Demagnetization, Packaging, and Storage

    Shelf Life of Magnets

    Almost everything has a shelf life. Certainly most food products at the grocery store will “go bad” if you don’t eat them before a certain date, but other products—including electronics, furniture, and even magnets—will weaken, become unsafe, or lose their ability to function as intended if not stored in a standardized setting or used within a certain number of years.

    If you want to limit damage to your magnets and prolong their shelf life, consider the following factors: net magnetic field strength, proper packaging, and safe storage.

  • Tectonic Plate Movement Could Cause Pole Reversals

    Around 800,000 years ago, if you had been navigating via compass your compass’ point would have aimed at Antarctica rather than the Arctic. That may sound like an insane phenomenon to experience, but pole reversals have happened many times over our planet’s history.

    Many a’ doomsday prepper have suggested that a pole reversal is the signaling of the end of days. However, pole reversals are the norm and scientists estimate reversals have happened at least hundreds of times over the last 3 billion years.

  • The Human Brain and Its Magnetism

    Human Brain and Its Magnetism

    Since the early 1990s, scientists have known that the human brain contains magnetic particles deep within the organ’s tissue. The problem: we still don’t know what they’re for.

    In a lab located in the remote forests near Munich, Germany, scientists are deep diving into the folds of the human brain to uncover the purpose of these magnetic particles. What could be the function of these mysterious particles? Some scientists considered that the particles served some biological function in the past while others suggest that the buildup of particles may have just come from pollution from our environment. Now, German scientists are leaning towards the first explanation.

  • How Magnets Help Control Your Shower Curtain

    At times, our shower curtains can be quite a nuisance. We’ve all been there before. It’s early in the morning, you’ve rolled out of bed and stumbled to the bathroom, barely allowing yourself time to wake up. You turn on the water, step in, and find yourself getting quickly frustrated with the shower curtain. No matter where you move, it keeps blowing toward you and sticking to your skin while you’re trying to take a shower.

    Luckily, there are a few fast solutions.

  • How Electromagnets are the Driving Force Behind Cranes

    Electromagnets are the Driving Force Behind Cranes

    A crane is one of the most important forms of industrial equipment in the construction, automotive and manufacturing industries. Skyscrapers, apartment complexes and other massive man-made structures cannot be built without them, while steel storage crates containing cars or manufacturing machines rely on cranes to be placed onto ships before they are transported overseas.

    Did you know that cranes wouldn’t be able to function without electromagnets? Below, we’ll explore exactly how these electromagnets act as the driving force behind industrial cranes.
