View Resource Sketches of a History of Classical Electromagnetism (Optics, Magnetism, Electricity, Electromagnetism)

Students and educators wishing to take a break from the lab and hit the history books should venture to this Website featuring a timeline of events in the world of electromagnetism. The site comes from the "Hyperjeff" network, the elaborate project of Jeff Biggus, a history of science (especially physics) buff. Well-organized and chock-full of links, Biggus's electromagnetism history timeline...

View Resource Magnetars

First, SpaceRef.com presents the discovery of the magnetar, "a neutron star with a super-strong magnetic field a thousand trillion times stronger than Earth's" (1). While this science article is rather old, from May 20, 1998, it was included in this Topic in Depth because it offers a great summary of the inquiries and advances in the understanding of magnetars since gamma ray detectors across our...
