The future is now? Scientists achieve superconductivity at room temperature in potentially revolutionary breakthrough
"Physicists have reached a major milestone, achieving superconductivity at room temperature, bringing humanity one major step closer towards several revolutionary technologies which would change life as we know it.
Superconductivity is a phenomenon in which an electrical charge moves through a material without resistance, in other words, with perfect efficiency.
The previous record for superconductivity was achieved at -23 degrees Celsius, but now researchers at the University of Rochester have managed the same feat at a relatively tropical 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit)."
