Physicists have observed the first direct evidence of symmetry in the magnetic properties — or nuclear ‘spins’ — of atoms. The advance could spin off practical benefits such as the ability to simulate and better understand exotic materials such as superconductors. 654 more words
There is currently no firmly-established fundamental limit on magnetic field strength, although exotic things start to happen at very high magnetic field strengths.
A magnetic field exerts a sideways force on a moving electric charge, causing it to turn sideways. 762 more words
