Visualizing Magnetic Fields. Cool!

Now this is just super slick. Using some sort of freaky combination of sound recordings, live video and 3D CGI visualization, boffins at NASA’s Space Science Lab (UC Berkley) have devised a way to visually represent the invisible forces of magnetic fields in video available at Animate Projects. Check it out.
The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers’ produced by fleeting electrons . Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?
Take a peek at the Magnetic Movie page for a more detailed description and another video.
