Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - July 17, 1970, Florence, South CarolinaI ask Andy n m Marti m no it m to a term Mac ism. P. O. Fib Andy sends a Complete 20-volume set of the world Book encyclopedia to Donald Thomson age 7, of Richmond Virginia for his question what makes a Magnet work Donald loves to play with magnets. Naturally he is very curious about the magic that makes them work. But it s hard for him to find someone to explain the details in just the right Way for a seven year old. This of course is the Job that your Friend Andy likes doing Best. In this Case the details Are quite Complex. So read the answer slowly and pause now and then to let it sink in. Then read it through again to fix the details in your head. The magic spreads outside and around a Magnet. But the real work begins inside the solid Iron. To understand it we must take an imaginary trip Down Down into the miniature world of atoms. An atom of course is too Small for our eyes to see. But after All we cannot see the wind but we know when and How it blows. Our Clever scientists have figured How tiny atoms work even though nobody Ever saw one the Iron atoms that make a Magnet work Are almost too Small to imagine. Each atom is made of even tinier bits of matter called particles. Its particles Are very neatly arranged and very very Busy. They Are arranged like a miniature solar system. The Sun in the Center is Little fists of particles called the nucleus. The planets Are Bitsy Electron particles. They orbit around the nucleus at Breakneck speeds. An atom s electrons All whirl in the same direction and create a tiny Breeze. It takes zillions of atoms to make a Small piece of solid Iron. If the Iron is not a Magnet its atoms Are packed so that their Breezy electrons whirl in All directions. In a Magnet Many of the atoms Are arranged so that their electrons whirl parallel to each other. The Breeze from one tiny atom is too Small to be noticed. But when billions of them work together like a team they create forceful Energy. This is the invisible Energy that reaches outside the Iron bar and makes a Magnet perform its wondrous magic. Not All the atoms in your Magnet Are lined to pull in the same direction. The working teams Are arranged in clusters called domains. There Are about million million atoms in each Domain. This is the figure one with Tail of 15 zeros but even with All these atoms the do main is no bigger than a Pinhead. There Are Many Many domains in a Magnet. Each one is a Busy team of atom s pulling together. All the teams also Are arranged to pull together. Then the Magnet can spread out its invisible Energy to pull scraps of Metal. Its opposite North and South poles feel the pull of another Magnet. Their two North poles Jerk apart. So do their two South poles. But a North pole and a South pole hug together. The Magnet works As Long As its domains pull together like teams. But this orderly arrangement is not fixed to stay forever. The Breezy atoms can be jostled to spin in different directions. The domains can be jostled out of line. The teamwork can be upset by heat or Hammer blows. When this happens the Magnet loses its. Magic and turns into just an Ordinary piece of Iron. Andy sends a world Book Globe to Donna Orr age 12, of Prescott Arizona Lor her question where is the Southern Cross located in the Northern hemisphere the most famous Constellation is the big no doubt because it circles around the North Star that hangs almost directly above the North pole. There is no such convenient Star above the South pole. However like the North pole the South pole has a Wreath of stars that Circle around and around it. The Southern Cross is the most outstanding Constellation among these circumpolar stars. South of the Equator it is As famous As the big dipper is to us. However it does not Point to a Star above the South pole because at that celestial Point there is Only an unoccupied Patch of sky. Its four Bright stars and one dimmer one Are arranged at the four Corners of a Cross. It shines against the glimmering background of the Milky Way near the inky Black Coal sack. Navigators use it to calculate the position of the celestial South pole. The Southern Cross shines in the skies below the Equator and it May be seen North of the Equator Low in the sky above Southern Texas and Florida.
