    This article was published in Navigation News and is published with permission from the editor and the author. This is a very important piece of work by one of our heroes as it begins to show how magnetic information can be processed by an animals. Cryptochromes look alike a very promising route to understand how animals navigate as well as the quantum aspects covered.
