Wind Turbine Project Part 2

Today we located a source for the powerful magnets we will use to build the generator of our wind turbine. The magnets are made of neodymium, iron, and boron (Nd2Fe14B) and are so strong that they are rated by the force it takes to pull them apart. The ones we are buying require 75 pounds to separate! Dude!!

How can you be thinking about wind turbines when you should be basking in the glow of a five overtime victory over the Aggies? Where is your school spirit?
