Congratulations, Magnetic Movie

By Carl Zimmer | October 28, 2009 10:47 pm

I had the pleasure of serving as a judge for the Scientific Merit Award at the Imagine Science Film Festival, which just closed over the weekend. You may have seen the winner we picked, Magnetic Movie, which I’ve embedded below. There was a huge variety to choose from, some wonderfully beautiful, and some finding great emotional depth in just a few minutes. But Magnetic Movie, in the way it reveals the hidden weirdness that surrounds us, was tops.

    Grr. The embedded video won’t play for me. Can someone offer another link?

  3. Carl;

    As you were a judge did you get any information you can share about how the video was made?

    It appears that all of the flux lines are added to the video as a conceptual theory. Obviously it would be cool if it were possible to actually visualize all of the types of “waves” that are present. Perhaps you as a judge have access to a lot more information that what is available on the site.
