Magnets, those objects that attract or repel each other, are more than staples of your refrigerator door. They are found in just about every laptop and the force they produce protects Earthlings from some lethal radiation from space. Live Science keeps up with the most interesting discoveries related to magnets and magnetism.
Electromagnetic radiation – it might sound like something that you’d be better off avoiding, but electromagnetic waves of various kinds underpin our senses and how we interact with the world.
Electromagnetic radiation is a form of energy that includes radio waves, microwaves, X-rays and gamma rays, as well as visible light.
The Magnetospheric Multiscale mission, which will study a cosmic phenomenon that is both dazzling and dangerous for people on Earth, is scheduled to launch into orbit on Thursday (March 12).
New research claims to have solved a messy paradox that has plagued geoscientists who study Earth's core and its life-protecting magnetic field.
Female sea turtles, known to swim thousands of miles before returning to their birthplace to lay eggs, find their way home by relying on unique magnetic signatures along the coast, a new study finds.

Relativity is one of the most famous scientific theories of the 20th century, but how well does it explain the things we see in our daily lives?
The sun may be partly responsible for lightning strikes on Earth, and scientists think fluctuations in the sun's magnetic field could be used to predict lightning storms weeks in advance.
SpaceIL is hoping to not only land an Israeli craft on the moon, but also learn a bit about lunar magnetism while the lander is there.
New research shows that a major tectonic shift may explain the huge increase in new species during the Cambrian explosion.
