Magnetic Fields: Made Visible in Video

by Patrick James

December 11, 2010

Semiconductor created "Magnetic Movie" to make magnetic fields visible.

Some background:

The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries. All action takes place around NASA's Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers' produced by fleeting electrons. Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?

Great questions! Learn more here.
