By way of Faisal's site I found a story intriguing to all armchair physicists: Earth's magnetic field apparently can boost gravity which may account for the relatively large variation between past measurements of Newton's gravitational constant. This may also account for the fact that the most distant space probes we've launched (e.g. Pioneer 10) have traveled farther away than they should have. Fascinating. <raises eyebrow>
