Natural magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic, ever-changing geometries as scientists from NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory excitedly describe their discoveries.

The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic, ever-changing geometries. All action takes place around NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries. Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers’ produced by fleeting electrons. Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?

  1. Are those actually supposed to be field lines?! Um… that’s a pretty large load of fail you’re carryin’ there, bud. It would be awesome, however, to actually set up, say, a 1024×768 array of coils and image some fields. Or one better! Set up a single coil, and run its output through a spectrum analyzer! This should allow you to “see” a 3-d image of its surroundings (magnetic field wise) if you apply the 3-d MRI image processing algorithms to it. Anyone care to continue this discussion in the forums?

    no, f’ake.
