    Scientists Could Now Control Magnetism Thanks to Metamaterials
    Scientists have long been trying to control magnetism — something that would do wonders for advancements in technology. The issue can best be explained by Earnshaw’s Theorem, which states that it's not possible to create a spot of maximum magnetic field strength in an empty space and that the strength of a magnetic field decreases with distance from the magnet.

  5. The Coolest Things People Have Found While Magnet Fishing

    The Coolest Things People Have Found While Magnet Fishing
    Similar to metal detecting, magnet fishing is a way to discover hidden objects around us. The biggest difference? Magnet fishing happens underwater. It’s actually pretty simple, take a strong retrieval magnet, or for a cheaper alternative— an eyebolt neodymium magnet—tied with some rope over to a body of water near you.
