“I see miracles all around me
Stop and look, it’s all astounding
Water, fire, air and dirt
Fucking magnets, how do they work?” -Insane Clown Posse
Oh, Insane Clown Posse, is there any amount of education that could ever change you? On the one hand, magnetism is a lot more counterintuitive than simple mechanics, I certainly won't deny it. But on the other hand, it certainly makes a lot of amazing things possible, things we might never have even tried had we not understood the physics and predicted them!
Come find out, read the whole thing, and be amazed at our incredible quantum Universe and the things it allows us to do!
Fun! Here's another nice video from the Royal Institute where the track is a Mobius Strip so the superconductor "hangs" off the bottom on alternate trips around. It's neat.
