To welcome in the summer, it’s a SUPER EPISODE!
Quoth the bards of rage:
So. Magnets. MAGNETS! MAGNETTSSSSSSS!
lets talk about magnets.
We talk about how magnetic fields work, where they come from, how they interact with things, how they can be used to levitate things (like frogs), magnetic fields in the sun and the earth, and where they come from. This show is rad.
Note that we’ve talked devoted entire episodes to some of the topics we mention in passing, like Aurora (episode 19), Sunspots and Magnetic fields in the sun (episode 17, and 46), Superconductors (episode18), the Dirac Sea (episode 8 ), Lightning (episode 22), and maybe others? Anyway. If you want to know more, the back catalogue will help.
Our guests today are totally amazing.
