Magnets that are supercooled with liquid nitrogen are pretty damn cool.[/badpun] The conductive material used in this video was likely a high-temperature superconductor, which is rather funny considering that those are considered to have critical temperatures of super conductivity in excess of 90 kelvin. This is interesting to me because it involves temperature, energy, magnetism, and apparently the alignment of the atoms in the conductor itself become very organized at the critical temperatures which can explain the behavior of low-temperature superconductors (less than 1 to 20 kelvin) but not the higher temperature ones.
As you can see, at a certain temperature the resistivity of the conductor immediately decreases to zero.

Since I found that video earlier via one of the related links from a video Tyler showed me earlier regarding plasma, I can only assume that Tyler found the video regarding plasma via you giving him that video, and then him seeing the plasma video via a related link.
I was talking to Tyler at the time, and not you, I'm sorry that I made you feel neglected. If you want me to validate our friendship, Daryl, I can just show you the next cool thing that I find and not show it to Tyler
