Anti-gravity mousePosted: September 11, 2009
Researchers pursuing research into the loss of bone density experienced by astronauts who stay in micro-gravity for long periods have devised a magnet strong enough to levitate a mouse.
The super-conducting magnet generates a field powerful enough to lift the water in the mouse’s body, in an environment very close to room temperature. From past experiments, the researchers are confident that there are little if any long-lasting effects on the animals.
The next step will be a ride at MovieWorld on the Gold Coast. Kidding, kidding… plenty of work to be done before this will be done on humans.
