Electromagnetism could be the future of energy for the whole worldMarch 6, 2012 0 By Bret Williams
Electromagnetism is one of the four fundamental forces of natural, and is the strongest among them.
The force is, essentially, responsible for holding everything together. For decades, scientists have attempted to harness the force as a way to power machines and unlock the secrets of the universe. These efforts have been met with significant challenges, however, as electromagnetism has proven to be a very dangerous force. Scientists from Duke University and Boston College may have found a way to capture the force without harming living organisms.
Using new composite materials often referred to as metamaterials.
These man-made substances are constructed in such a way that their effects are not common in nature. As such, they can be designed to change the fundamental actions of electromagnetism and other such forces. Researchers believe that by decreasing the electric component of the force and increasing its magnetic aspect they are able to significantly reduce the risk to humans the force presents. This would make the force usable as a form of energy that could power various types of transportation and machinery.
