Mother of all magnets coming

It's taken them 10 years of research and construction. Now the Los Alamos National Laboratory is about to test drive the world's strongest magnet.

Able to produce a magnetic field of 88 tesla, the machine is expected to reach 100 Tesla.

According to this story the force comes from a generator from an abandoned nuclear power project that supplies 1.4 billion watts of power.

Power from this generator is stored and pulsed to create the massive magnetic fields.
