Japanese Researchers Use Booze For Superconductivity

Monday, March 7, 2011 - 14:40 in Physics & Chemistry

Booze has likely inspired many an action in researchers but any actual science effect was second order.   No more.   Scientists from the National Institute for Materials Science in Japan found that immersing pellets of an iron-based compound in heated alcoholic beverages for 24 hours greatly increase their superconducting ability. And red wine, which has been shown to have numerous health benefits, is apparently tops in physics experiments as well. read more
