Caption: Demonstration of magnetic levitation of one of the new high-temperature superconducting ceramics. Discovered in 1986, these novel superconductors are expected to lead to a technological revolution & are the subject of intensive worldwide research. The photograph shows a small, cylindrical magnet floating freely above a cooled, cylindrical slab of the superconducting ceramic. The glowing vapour is from liquid nitrogen, which maintains the ceramic within its superconducting temperature range.
