waiting for the day we can use this fascinating material.

Shouldn't the paragraph read "led to the theory that a separate state of matter exists at temperatures just BELOW the superconducting state?"

Interesting, new experiments leading to new data leading to new theory that will be tested with more experiments. Not bad, given the serendipitous way superconductivity has been detected previously.

More importantly, how would this contribute to to an understanding of atomic forces and the grand unified field theory?

I'm generally as optimistic about the future as the next guy, but it seems very early to be talking about how to apply this effect. A new state of matter would be a fundamental change in what we understand about 'stuff' in general. If they can actually observe this new state and begin to understand it then maybe we can start talking about what it would be good for. Larry M.

Quite interesting indeed since having superconductivity at a room temperature would make a shift in energy storage and transportation without loss... or at least minimal loss. Superconductors offer no resistance to the current that goes through and lets not forget about the Meissner effect which allows the rejection of magnetic fields whatever the polarity. The levitating trains would become very common.

This is very interesting. Hopefully we will soon be seeing a breakthrough in an important and potentially extremely useful and beneficial area as a result.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
