As properties of metals go, magnetism is one we are all familiar with. Playing with magnets is fun when you're a kid, but this timelapse video demonstrates that magnetism can be fun for all ages. In the video, a magnetic putty is drawn towards very strong magnets. It looks almost sci-fi in nature, but is entirely real...and very cool. We say "nice work" to the videographer Ian Parks for experimenting with this science.
