Scientists have broken the previous record of attaining superconductivity at the highest possible temperature, -23 degrees celsius, by achieving it at 15 degrees Celsius. This will revolutionize the world and change the way as we see the world today.


Superconductivity, discovered by Heike Kamerlingh Onnes, refers to the property of materials in which they carry current with 0 resistance (This doesn't mean that the electrons don't move at all. They do move, but they possess a really low kinetic energy, decreasing the probability of any collision between them.) Lightweight metals with strong bonds make good superconducto
