There are some staff who have been there 50 to 60 years, and they had never seen it either.”.
By the 1930s, American scientist Joseph Henry made a series of improvements on the design of the electromagnet. By using insulated wire, he was able to place thousands of turns of wire on a single core. As a result, one of his electromagnets could support as much as 936 kg (2,063 lbs) of weight.
