May I take your picture while you sunbathe?

Nope that isn't creepy at all. Not one bit.

I'm pretty sure it's a magnet floating over a superconductor, not the other way around as the caption for the other picture in the article states.

Holy fark that's awesome.

Please let the higher temperatures be close to room temperature. Pleaaasseeee!

it's not the staring that bothers me. what bothers me is he never blinks. ever. and he looks way too much like that psycho eyes guy in the Werther's Original candy commercials. spooky.

/and always with one hand in his pants, tug tug tug
//even when he's talking to his Mother
///creepy

Yeah, I'm thinking this is like a one-degree swing. If it were significantly above previous record high Tc figures, they'd be trumpeting it in this press release, which is the only thing I can seem to turn up describing the research. (That and 32 bucks will get you access to the Nature Nano summary; God only knows what the original Angewandte Chemie article would cost.)

It's interesting, but it doesn't smell like The Breakthrough.

Aye, I realize it's probably not as awesome as I would hope.

.. Hrm, though, I *could* actually get ahold of the articles, what with being a physics grad student and being on campus and all.
