Graphite platform levitates without power
Magnetic levitation is used to float everything from lightbulbs to trains, with varying levels of success, but usually it requires a power source. Now, scientists in Japan have developed a way to make ... continued..
China successfully tests maglev trains in vacuum tube, eyeing future speeds of 4,000 kph
China has the world's fastest train but it wants to push speeds even higher. It has recently run a train through a low-vacuum tube at speeds of more than 600 kph — but the designers want it to ... continued..
Bismuth is so strongly repelled from magnets, it levitates. How?
Magnetic levitation — bismuth's ability to seemingly float between two magnets — is perhaps one of the most interesting. The repulsion between bismuth and the magnets is so strong, it causes ... continued..
Watch the first-ever magnetic levitation test on regular train tracks
A test by Italian firm IronLev has provided successful examples of how a magnetic levitation train, or maglev, might work on already existing train tracks. This is a huge boon, as the maglev demo ... continued..
Researchers create stable superconductor enhanced by magnetism
An international team including researchers from the University of Würzburg has succeeded in creating a special state of superconductivity. This discovery could advance the development of quantum ... continued..
Superconductivity: the search and the scandal
Recent high profile controversies haven't deterred scientists from searching for one of research's ultimate prizes: room temperature superconductors. Kit Chapman reports on the claims ... continued..
