    You go, boys and girls. 25 Tesla is indeed impressive! *thumbs up*

    It means that if you are 200 lb. man standing on it, and they turned it on, you would weigh 100,000,000 lbs.

    This kid better watch out:

    Interesting how they plan to use this. Hope they dont throw off the Earth's magnetosphere.

    Just FYI, wikipedia pointed me to the following article which claims that a 45T magnet was developed in 1999 - at the same facility noted in this article. There must be some qualifier involved like maybe that it is the strongest non-superconducting magnet, or something.

    http://www.magnet.fsu.edu/mediacenter/news/pressreleases/1999december17.html

    I though it was odd that it was only 25T so I had to go and check.

    Shit me, if it's that much stronger this thing could extract magnetic metals from the planets crust without mining.

    ( assuming the weight/friction didn't exceed the power of this device)

    lol at kid. They will observe atoms and molecules at these conditions.

    Lol I know 25 T is not even close but I'm sure this magnet will play its part in science.

    They could levitate frogs and grasshoppers in that thing.

    Diamagnetic levitation can be used to levitate very light pieces of pyrolytic graphite or bismuth above a moderately strong permanent magnet. As water is predominantly diamagnetic, this technique has been used to levitate water droplets and even live animals, such as a grasshopper, frog and a mouse. However, the magnetic fields required for this are very high, typically in the range of 16 teslas, and therefore create significant problems if ferromagnetic materials are nearby.

    Found an old article. I think it was about this magnet:

    http://www.energy-daily.com/reports...t_For_Neutron_Scattering_Experiments_999.html

    So they need it for neutron scattering experiments. Yeah baby, we need to know more about superconductors!

    I'm sure the magnetic field is very intense, but I doubt it's anywhere near that large.

    This crap pisses me off. How about spending 2.5m towards something useful like an electric vehicle infrastructure that could be of benefit NOW rather then "hopes" that "one day" "some thing" may lead to the development of "some other thing"? Their making crap just to make crap. Bet he drives a nice car with those government grants. At least he can afford the gas. :)

    Lol what the fuck. How the world's strongest magnet is not useful. You don't say a thing while your retarded superstars football players or other cocksuckers spend 2.5m a day. But yeah all the scientists in the world should work and create more consumery crap and gimmicks.

    how about giving that 2.5m to poor people like me so that we can make awesome mods?

    Your mistaking magnetism for gravity.

    Anti-Matter traps ! Now you just need to fit that thing at the end of the LHC.

    It could suck the iron out of your blood. Or at least it can cause a massive hemorrhage.

    Shit, they could have just given that 2.5m to charity and stuff or other sensible/practical stuff. Whats the use for this magnet anyway? Just for show? Next weapon of mass destruction?

    I am having a *woosh* moment here; how is this dangerous to people? Humans aren't magnetic, are they?
