Ah yes, Superconductors…perfect for levitating trains and zero-loss power transmission (Wiki)—Just call me back when they figure out a room-temperature superconductor rather than this one only works at 8 Kelvin (–265°C).
Boiling in Wine Makes a Superconductor? Unusual Announcement from NIMS
Nikkei Electronics Asia — Sept 30, 2010
….the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) of Japan announced that it has created a superconducting material with a critical temperature of 8K (–265°C) by immersing an inorganic compound into liquor and boiling it for twenty-four hours at about 70°C….
…After a discouraging lack of results, Dr. Youichi Kamihara of the Tokyo Institute of Tech… suggested Dr. Takano trying liquor at a party in laboratory. While he said it half in jest, Takano was astonished to discover that it worked…more….
