Eh ? Get what ?

I hesitate to embark on this topic here, instead of the Science board; but the whole mish-mash of gravity and magnetism as presented here on the prestigious AOM channel is a menace to young minds seeking to order their logic and reason upon sound scientific principles.
Leaving off gravity for the moment, because of its innate gravitas, let's take a quick gander at the rubric "magnetism".

Magnetism may be dubbed a primary force, or as the "single-most fundamental force" in RLP's words; but only if a good working definition of 'force' is established first. Any eighth grade physics student can affirm that All local magnetism has an antecedent electric current.
Even 'permanent magnets' are created with an intense electric current impinging upon amenable atomic nuclei, usually in some dense form of matter.

As for detected magnetic 'fields' in rarified space (detected always by electric means), one can just look at the wonderful explosion of recent images from the latest space scopes depicting electric "jets", filaments, discs and neural-looking networks; to see the ubiquity of electric currents wherever one looks.

Ed the brilliant Latvian, it seems, had some interesting looking electric devices at his castle site as well.
