Superconductors reach half-way to room temperature


A rash of new discoveries in the last month or so have netted a compound capableimage of having  superconducting properties well above the boiling point of of nitrogen.  It’s superconducting properties are kept until 138K, add pressure and this can be raised to a whopping 164k.  That’s half-way to 298K room temperature.
