A quantum step forward in high pressure science

Under normal conditions, some materials are naturally better at conducting electricity than others. By applying high enough pressure, some materials that normally block the flow of electricity, like sulfur, can become conductors better than copper or gold. A wire of such "superconductor" could theoretically deliver... click to read more
