Maybe you can really feel magnetic fields

For many years we have known that many animals can somehow feel magnetic fields. Birds apparently use the Earth's magnetic field to navigate. Dogs can find a box containing a magnet better than they can find a similar box with a bite in it. But people apparently cannot visualize magnetic fields without help. Several researchers in California, New Jersey and …
