Scientists may have learned a bit more about the birth of our solar system. By examining magnetic fields trapped in grains within a primitive meteorite, researchers have pieced together how the early solar system evolved.

"The measurements made by Fu and Weiss are astounding an unprecedented," said Steve Desch, co-author of the new paper, in a news release. "Not only have they measured tiny magnetic fields thousands of times weaker than a compass feels, they have mapped the magnetic fields' variation recorded by the ...
