I'm starting this thread along the same basis as my graphene thread, where I will post links to interesting articles about superconductors. A lot of people doubt anything will come of it, while I firmly believe room temperature superconductors are less than 10 years away. As it goes only time will tell. So to start off... Many roads lead to superconductivity A side note, among the odd properties near absolute zero (which used to describe superconductors) there is also super thermal conductivity and super fluidity. A material with super thermal conductivity would be at the same temperature throughout. Larry Niven once wrote a story where a sheet of room temperature superconductive material was also a super thermal conductor. Such a material would be more than a little useful. You would no longer need to pump fluids around at all to move heat around, as in car water cooling systems, air conditioners, and refrigerators. A super fluid has zero viscosity. That property would also be useful in the high temperature ranges.
