Einstein–de Haas effect offers new insight into a puzzling magnetic phenomenon

The Earth's magnetic pole is wobbling around, causing various navigation issues across the globe. Luckily, there's a model that corrects for this wobble. Unluckily, a crucial update to the magnetic pole model is delayed because of the US government shutdown. The post We Can’t Correct for Magnetic Pole Shifts Thanks to the Government Shutdown appeared first on ExtremeTech.
