Magnetic Levitation in the News

How’d They Do It: Levitating Orb Clock
Let us know in the comments below. If you’re looking to play with this phenomenon in your own projects, it seems you can buy a magnetic levitation device which exhibits similar properties. continued..
A Wild Experiment With Magnets Actually Suspended Gravity
Gravity basically isn’t part of the physics equation when spin-stabilized levitation enters the fray. As research continues to build on a new type of magnetic levitation—which features a spinning ... continued..
Scientists use levitating magnets to understand quantum gravity
Scientists have identified a subtle gravitational force acting on a minuscule particle through an innovative approach. continued..
Scientists finally find why spinning magnet causes 2nd magnet to levitate
While magnetic levitation is a well-known concept, this specific instance perplexed researchers since it defied traditional physics laws. Rasmus Bjørk, a professor at DTU, was intrigued by the ... 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..
China’s hyperloop is fastest high-speed train in history
The China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation ran a test and a high-speed train, using maglev technology, has broken its previous record of 387mph. continued..
Magnetic Levitating Bearing for a bi-Ventricular Assist Device
Sign up to receive important email messages about the Imagine RIT Festival this year, and future years, too (save-the-date announcement, event announcements, and post ... continued..
The secret behind the levitating Jyotirlinga at Somnath Temple
The ancient architects of Somnath Temple used a magnetic levitation system to create the levitating Jyotirlinga. They used a large loadstone as the ceiling magnet, a smaller iron Jyotirlinga as ... continued..
China sets world record for fastest hyperloop train
A Chinese missile manufacturer claims to have built the fastest train ever, a hyperloop train that travels in a vacuum tube using magnetic levitation. continued..
Tunnel collapse causes first death related to maglev train project
Gifu Prefecture--A tunnel collapse here Oct. 27 killed a 44-year-old construction worker and seriously injured another man in the first fatal accident connected to the enormous magnetic levitation ... continued..
A Wild Experiment With Magnets Actually Suspended Gravity
Gravity basically doesn’t factor into a new style of rotation-based magnetic levitation being developed. This spin-stabilized levitation uses a rotating magnet to steady the levitating magnet ... continued..
