A small group of scientists has reported that they’ve successfully tested a substance (Tl4PbBa2MgCu8O13+) which is superconductive at zero degrees celsius. Since most superconductors only work when they’re cooled to hundreds of degrees below zero, this is a game-changer. Once we can create superconductors that work at room temperature, it’s a world-changer.

The awesome march of science and technology continues.
