Magnetism is the best science

#Magnetism is the best science #####by @katemonkeys for @indutny

Magnetism is by far (a) the coolest and (b) the most educational quantum mechanical phenomenon. It’s fabulous because it is both deep science and actual real-world applications you use every single day (computer hard drive, anyone?). Finally, it can be understood on a crazy range of length and timescales: ridiculous magnets in the National High Magnetic Field Lab that are so strong they implode on themselves, blocks that move themselves, single atoms with localized moments that have to be understood by extrapolating their single particle wave functions, whatever. I contend that learning about magnetism will give you an awesome window on the rest of QM.

Enjoy :)
