Researchers at the University of Rochester have produced a material that is superconductive at room temperature, the holy grail of materials development that holds the potential to revolutionize virtually every aspect of modern technology—all without the need for bulky refrigeration equipment required to cool the material low enough to produceread more

This prominent feature of Saturn’s atmosphere not only appears as a geometric hexagonal pattern, but it has also sported a distinctive blue hue, contrasting with the pale golden atmosphere that makes up the rest of Saturn’s clouds to the south.
