Do You Feel the Attraction?

Why are people so drawn to magnets? (Bad pun, I know.) Magnets truly are fascinating, and a mini-movie was filmed at the NASA Space Sciences Laboratory, UC Berkeley, in 2007 showing just the amazing research that goes on regarding magnetic forces. Everything shown in the movie takes place around those laboratories as the scientists describe their research and discoveries. These scientists develop and conduct experiments and instruments to study the magnetic fields above the sun and to create theoretical models.

The site describes the movie saying, "Magnetic Movie is the aquavit, something not precisely scientific but grants us an uncanny experience of geophysical and cosmological forces." Take a gander at the short movie, it's beautifully artistic and cleverly done.
