What if I told you there was a material that could become the world’s most powerful rocket propellant, releasing 20 times more specific energy than is released by the engines of the Space Shuttle? Or that this same material could become the first ever room-temperature superconductor — an advancement that would allow for computers thousands of times more powerful than the ones in your home. An advancement that could help us finally achieve the futuristic dream of nuclear energy. Not only that, it would also make our current energy plants safer and more efficient, as well as transforming the fields of medicine and transportation. Because of these impressive claims scientists have been in a race to create this material ever since it was first hypothesized in 1935. And we may have recently gotten one step closer to its inception.
