Scientists Find a Superconductor in Bits of Meteorite

by Ryan F. Mandelbaum, Gizmodo

Scientists have detected trace amounts of superconducting material inside one of the world’s largest meteorites, according to a new study.

Superconductors are materials that can conduct electrical current without resistance, and they’re coveted by researchers who study quantum computers and companies hoping to transfer energy more efficiently. The superconductor inside the Australian meteorite is a known material, but the discovery itself comes as a shock.
