    Back in the day, most of us had our first encounter with magnets at Woolworth's, when we'd plunk down 29-cents for a Wooly Willy, that plastic bubble-covered cardboard face. It came with a cool llittle magnet, and the plastic bubble over Willy's face was filled with metal shavings. You'd just pull it around to make carzy mustaches, weird beards and wacky hair-dos; then shake and repeat.  Those more curious about magnets sprinkled iron filings on a piece of paper set on top of a magnet to see...

  • Shocking Video: Magnet Blows Up Lab 12/28/2018 14:02:38

    Scientists at the University of Tokyo blew the doors off the world for building the world's strongest controlled magnetic field.  Literally.  Check out the video and see the incredibly heavy doors blown to smithereens as the electromagnetic field reached the gargantuan strength of 1,200 teslas.  That is 400 times more powerful than an MRI machine, which produces about three teslas.  This smashed the previous record of 1,000 teslas. Don't try this at home. The scientists pumped 3.2 megajoules of...
