Scientists from South Korea have claimed to have created the first room-temperature ambient-pressure superconductor. If this is the case, and if this passes peer-review, then this announcment is incredible. It will revolutionize life as we know it once we can manufacture it.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
