Experimenting With Ferrofluid Poured On Magnets Levitating Above A Superconductor

February 22, 2018

This is a video of Youtuber JD Rock pouring ferrofluid over a variety of different magnets that are levitating above a superconductor. Science! And by science I very clearly mean magic. When reached for comment about the experiment, I could hear Magneto begin rubbing himself so I hung up. Obviously, for $3.99/minute that would have been a different story.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to MustacheHam, who informed me he likes cool science stuff. Me too! I like all cool stuff really, except the cool guy in high school who stole my girlfriend.

    I like when they first pour it over the magnet and it covers it perfectly. That's super cool.

    They harvest the ferrofluid from sentient BostonDynamics robots.

    My favorite part is when it looks like some fluid is going to dribble down the side of the bottle, but then snapps into place on the magnet. My experiments with pouring vanilla extract into a teaspoon could take some lessons!

    Science! Explain!

    Also this if cool as fuck.

  • MustacheHam

    Awesome, thanks for posting it GW. :)
    Magnets are indeed neat objects for tools and entertainment.

    Ferrofluid, some Tupperware, and a neodymium magnet provide lots of entertainment, though the ferrofluid itself is tremendously messy.
