    Room temperature super conducting

    So, a carbon based sulphur hydride At a million Bar or so, in a diamond anvil, superconducts at 15 C. Big news, and I wonder how long it will take to bring that pressure down?

    When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.

    Here is an article on it:

    The most interesting bit to me is that they are getting a better idea about hydrogen’s role in these superconductors. I’m a bit doubtful this will ever lead to room temperature superconductors at reasonable pressure, though.

    It would be hopeful if these materials surviving compressive or triaxial loads can be made to support tension at small scale. That would lead to filaments with hoop stressed crystalline skins. Just musing.

    Agree completely. This will not directly lead to a room temperature superconductor, but may improve our understanding of the mechanisms.
