The North Pole is moving. Not the geographic axis around which Earth spins, of course, but rather its magnetic pole, the north end of which is slowly but steadily wandering across the Arctic Ocean toward Siberia. Continue reading →
How do magnetars become so magnetized? Astronomers think that they might get a little help from their friends. Continue reading →
Three satellites -- dubbed the Swarm -- are mapping the Earth's magnetic field in record time. Continue reading →
Magnetars are the most magnetically-dense objects known in the Universe and now astrophysicists may have found one of these stellar husks being choked by a magnetic noose, causing it to wobble. Continue reading →
Cell-phone shields may do little to protect you -- and scientists say they're unnecessary. Continue reading →
Wonder why dogs sometimes walk in circles before sleeping or going to the bathroom? Well, it has to do with hygiene and territorial instincts. It also involves Earth's magnetic field, which is crazy, and Anthony is here to tell you all about it.
A Russian rocket put a trio of European science satellites into orbit around Earth’s poles on Friday for a four-year mission to map the planet’s magnetic field and learn more about why the protective shield appears to be weakening. Continue reading →
