Physicists Discover Tantalising New Properties of Uranium Compounds, Including Superconductivity https://www.sciencealert.com/new-uran... “Scientists have experimentally confirmed the existence of strange new uranium compounds - and they predict some could even achieve superconductivity close to room temperature.”
Superconductors to Wire a Smarter Grid https://www.technologyreview.com/s/41... “A proposed hub for connecting the three independent electricity grids that span the continental United States could make it easier to ramp up production of renewable electricity.”
Explainer: What Is A Superconductor? https://www.iflscience.com/physics/ex... “On a microscopic level the electrons in a superconductor behave very differently from those in a normal metal. Superconducting electrons pair together, allowing them to travel with ease from one end of a material to another. The effect is a bit like a priority commuter lane on a busy motorway.” ____________________
