Magnetic movie

Of course, we cannot see magnetic fields other than in the aurora borealis, that is why we have computer animation. Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt of Semiconductor are two masters in the use of computer animations for visualizing phenomena.

Their Magnetic Movie, filmed in the NASA's Space Sciences Laboratories at UC Berkeley was awarded the Nature Scientific Merit Award by Imagine Science Film Festival, New York 2009; awarded Best Film at Cutting Edge at the British Animation Awards 2008; received the special Mention, Best International Experimental Short at Leeds International Film Festival 2008; and was awarded Best Experimental Film at Tirana International Film Festival 2007.
