Superconductors from outer set apart

Credit: Graeme Churchard/flickr Samples from the Mundrabilla meteorite, which was found in Australia in 1911, contain traces of alloys that are low-temperature superconductors. For the first time, researchers have confirmed the presence of superconducting materials in meteorites, a result that may have implications for astrophysicists’ understanding of planetary formation. Using a highly sensitive detection technique,…
