Record-setting 100 Tesla Magnetic Field Emits An Eerie Howl

Researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory’s biggest magnet facility succeeded last week in producing the world’s first magnetic field surpassing 100-tesla, an achievement that produced a magnetic field roughly 2,000,000 times stronger than Earth’s magnetic field. The official measure was 100.75 tesla, or T, which was created using a “100-tesla pulsed, multi-shot magnet, a combination of seven coils sets …
