Superconductivity at –23 degrees Celsius?

Researchers at the University of Chicago have managed to beat the previous world record for high-temperature superconductivity (HTSC) by 50K. This new material reaches superconductivity at –23 °C (under very high pressure conditions). by Thomas Scherer @ elektormagazine.com Even...
