For decades, researchers have pursued an elusive goal with truly world-changing potential - room-temperature superconductors.
When an electric current flows through a regular conductor like copper, there is still some resistance, which means energy is lost through heat. With superconductors, the electrons flow freely with absolutely no resistance.
This could revolutionize electricity transmission and distribution systems, where billions of dollars are lost each year through inefficiency.
The superconductor revolution is coming.
