The future is now? Scientists achieve superconductivity at room temperature in potentially revolutionary breakthrough

‘Clean, limitless’ power, generated by ‘miracle material’ graphene in major breakthrough, but there’s a catch

Therefore, there is still a long way to go before superconductivity can be achieved at normal pressures at room temperature where it could realistically be brought to bear in our technology, but the latest breakthrough takes humanity one step closer ambient-pressure superconductivity and the plethora of technological revolutions that would entail. 

While it all sounds a bit science fiction, the applications of functional superconductivity would be truly revolutionary: maglev (magnetic levitation) trains, which can travel at speeds that rival high-speed rail and airplanes, would likely become more widespread on a global scale, reducing pollution from air travel; power grids would be far more efficient, reducing energy waste across the world; data transfer could reach previously unfathomable speeds, allowing for unprecedented informational and data exchange hitherto unseen in mankind’s history.
