No other manifestation of the earth has been as seemingly inexplicable as the earth?s magnetic field. More than a thousand years ago, individuals in China set afloat in bowls of water tiny slivers of loadstone, the mineral now called magnetite, and discovered that the slivers quickly assumed a preferred direction. That observation led to the development of the magnetic compass, which is still used by navigators, hikers and others seeking a way to determine direction. William Gilbert?s Die Magnete (1600), his definitive work, was based upon extensive magnetic measurements collected around the globe, which showed that the earth itself is like a giant magnet, rather than magnetism arising from an extraterrestrial source as supposed by others1. In 1838, the mathematical genius, Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss, proved that the earth?s magnetism source is at, or very near, the centre of the earth2.
