Here’s Why You Should NEVER Bring Metal Objects Inside an MRI Machine [Video]

1 Share

Here is why they do not allow people to have metal objects on them while entering an MRI machine. The experiment was performed using a 4 tesla MRI magnet that was about to be decommissioned.

Note how magnetic objects let loose tend to oscillate along the magnet bore. That’s because the peak magnetic field gradients are at either end (near the magnet face), causing peak acceleration as the object enters, followed by progressively damped changes of direction.

And for those of you who are wondering how safe an MRI is for the human brain, I’ll let Youtuber Physics Girl take over to cover just that for me.

This Giant LEGO Star Destroyer is Over 4 Feet Long and Weighs 70 Pounds!

Imgur user doomhandle made this awesome 4-feet-long LEGO Star Destroyer that weighs almost 70 pounds! Unfortunately, he did not mention how many brick were used in the built, but I’m sure you can all imagine that the number is way over 10,000.

The Tyrant is over 56 inches (1.4m) long and weighs approximately 70 lbs (32kg) with a full load (the interior adds a lot of weight). That makes it about 20 inches longer — and quite a few times heavier — than the classic LEGO UCS version.

No non-Lego components were used, except for a couple strings of LED lights (not shown — still working on that).
