Foxes Use Earth's Magnetic Field to Hunt...

Foxes often jump high into the air in order to pounce on prey from above. They have an unusual ability to not only judge the correct direction of attack, but the proper distance to leap in a parabolic arc. How do they...

Slag from Ancient Copper Mines Shows that the Earth's Magnetic Field Was Much Stronger 3,000 Years Ago...

The Earth's magnetic field fluctuates in intensity. But until recently, most scientists thought that it wouldn't change more than 16% in a century. Slag recovered from a 3,000-year old Egyptian copper mine indicates th...
