Can Human’s Detect Earth’s Magnetic Fields?

A researcher in US has begun experiments to study human’s ability to detect the Earth’s magnetic fields. Geophysicist Joe Kirschvink from the California Institute of Technology based his hypothesis on how birds, insects, and some mammals seem to be able to use this sense to migrate and orient themselves with the world around them. Although Kirschvink has so far only presented the results of a very small trial involving 24 participants, he says that he has not only been able to identify it in humans for the first time, but that his results can be repeated and verified. Some scientists believe that the...
