Daniel E. Farnes  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hello Naked Scientists,

Hopefully you will be able to solve a puzzling issue for me; What makes iron, nickel and cobalt so much more magnetic than all the other elements?

Thanks very much for your newbielink:http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/podcasts/ [nonactive], I always recommend them!

Daniel

London.

What do you think?
