Building A Levitating Turbine Desk Toy
Magnetic levitation is a beautiful thing to watch. Seeing small objects wobble about while seemingly hovering in thin air never gets old. If you want something suitably distracting in this vein ... continued..
Magnetic levitation demonstrated using a Dremel tool spinning a magnet at 266 Hz. (VIDEO)
Magnetic levitation demonstrated using a Dremel tool spinning a magnet at 266 Hz. The rotor magnet is 7x7x7 mm3 and the floater magnet is 6x6x6 mm3. This video show the physics described in the ... continued..
Magnetic Levitation - the Future of Rail Travel?
Magnetic Levitation Transport, or maglev, is a revolutionary form of railway transport. It uses magnetic forces to make the vehicles hover above the track rather than running along them ... continued..
NASA is Making Super Cheap and Light Magnetic Levitation for Moon Bases
The moon has one-sixth the gravity of the earth so magnetic levitation can use 35 times less power to do the same work. NASA will leverage this to make thin sheets that can rolled out to make lunar ... continued..
GM dreams up magnetic levitating seats
General Motors is looking to patent a magnetic levitation system that would replace conventional seat adjusters. As described in a patent application filed by GM with the United States Patent and ... continued..
Maglev Train Is More Harm than Good
A superconducting magnetic levitation train, also known as SCMaglev or Maglev for short, can travel at speeds up to 300 mph or faster. Project developers for a proposed Maglev train in the ... continued..
Spin of Supermassive Black Hole Measured at a Quarter the Speed of Light
This week, science reporter Isaac Schultz described a groundbreaking effort to measure the spin of a supermassive black hole, and a fascinating experimental archaeology experiment ... continued..
