As featured on the Nov. 9 2011 episode of the Colbert Report!
From the Low Temperature Lab: a short movie exhibiting the quantum mechanical phenomenon of superconductivity and a brief explanation of one of its most intriguing consequences -- magnetic levitation and suspension. demonstrations include levitation above a ferromagnet, levitation above a magnetic track, and levitation/suspension on a magnetic roller coaster track.
