Astronomers reveal supermassive black hole's intense magnetic field Astronomers from Chalmers University of Technology have used the giant telescope Alma to reveal an extremely powerful magnetic field very close to a supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy. The results appear in the 17 April 2015 issue of the journal Science.
Ahmed Mater. 'Magnetism II' 2012 In the series Magnetism, what at first appear to be pilgrims circling the Ka’ba, the sacred building at the heart of the sanctuary at Mecca, are in fact iron filings spiralling around a cube-shaped magnet. Mater refers to the spiritual force that Muslim believers feel during Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca. By creating photographs that recall well-known images on a dramatically different scale, Mater also questions the reliability of photography.
"A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism" by James Clerk Maxwell, 1873 Physics nerds pride themselves on wearing T-shirts with Maxwell's equations. The equations' discoverer, Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell, compiled his theories into "A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism," published in 1873.
Magnetic Fields Can Send Particles to Infinity - I’ve always thought that if we’re ever to achieve long-range intersteller space travel, magnetics will play a large role in the process. This is especially true if we’re going to get away from the dependence of currently used rocket fuel in the process. I’m not quite certain of the physics/mechanics involved (yet) but surely magnetic fields will be needed to control the alternative energy source. That's why I find this new research so fascinat...
