Are they actually pushing around a magnetic field without moving the electromagnets?

  1. Sep 27, 2011 #1
    The electrotoirdal effect was recently discovered. This article seems to me to describe it as the translation of a magnetic field without moving its origin: http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-09-physicists-magnetotoroidic-effect.html

    Is my interpretation correct? And could the magnetoelectric effect (described in the same article) be used for propulsion?

    Don't get too excited. They only ran a simulation, they didn't actually conduct an experiment.
