The Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC), recently posted a video on the Internet which went viral within a few hours. Why did it cause so much excitement? Quantum Levitation.
That phrase just sounds so sciencey, it conjures up images of middle aged men with bad hairstyles in safety goggles and white lab coats. In a nutshell Quantum Levitation occurs when a superconductor is locked in a magnetic field. We’ll skip the whole mind melting explanation and leave that to the experts in the video, but the reason this excites us and a few million other people is that products could adopt this simple technology in the future which means THIS could become a reality.
Science, why you so slow?
