In a first, magnetic fields have been spotted between two galaxy clusters

For the first time astronomers have sighted magnetic fields between two galaxy clusters – The fields run between the galaxy clusters Abell 0399 and Abell 0401, which are beginning to merge about 1 billion light years from Earth, researchers report in the June 7 Science . Radiation from electrons zipping through the magnetic fields revealed this magnetism in the gaseous …

Humans can have an age-old ability to capture magnetic fields

Humans may have a sixth sense to capture Earth's magnetic field. Known as magnetoreception, meaning is one of the ways birds and fish can travel vast distances with surprising accuracy – a built-in compass for traveling around the globe. So far, however, it had not been seen in humans. Researchers at the California Institute of Technology and the University of …

Maybe you can really capture magnetic fields

We have known for years that many animals can somehow capture magnetic fields. Birds apparently use the Earth's magnetic field to navigate. Dogs find a box that contains a magnet, better than a similar box with a treat. But humans can not visualize magnetic fields without help. Several scientists from California, New Jersey and Japan have conducted experiments that seem …
