SUPRAPOWER Project to Develop Superconductor Wind Turbines for EU

Despite the clean energy provided by wind turbines, they remain expensive to build and install, especially the offshore type. To help reduce this cost,...

Low Pressure Superconducting Hydrogen Compound Discovered

We have always thought of hydrogen as a fuel. Yet, there are many possibilities for this interesting element. Normally found in gaseous state, hydrogen is the most common in the universe. Recently, scientists from Carnegie Institution in Washington D.C., have found a way to compress hydrogen in such a manner that it becomes not only solid, but turns into a metallic superconducting state.

Scientists Produce Solid Hydrogen Superconductor

A study published in journal Science yesterday claims that for the first time in the history of mankind, solid hydrogen exists on earth. This solid...
