Yeah, I agree with the post above mine. I've heard of ORMUS materials for awhile now. They are Monatomic elements found in nature or created with chemistry that are often super conducive or magnetic at room temp. And as also stated, these seem to have been around quite awhile. Just a bit more of that "newly discovered" tech that predates our ability to to understand we are stupid compared to people of the past.

Will we see Intercontinental Mag-levs trains ?
Would this make them appreciatively cheaper ?

For those who are unaware, a superconductor is a material that has zero electrical resistance, enableing an electric charge to pass through it without energy loss and theoreticaly last forever.
However, the only superconductors we have today require being constantly super cooled by either liquid Helium (very rare and hard to make) or liquid Nitrogen (but only newer and more expensive Superconductors can work in the relatively warm temperature)
But there is hope, scientists theorize that sometime in the next 50 years it may be possible to create superconductors that can work at room temperature. If this were to happen it would revolutionize the electronics industry, all appliances could be made 100% effecient and computers of unprecidented speed and power could be built.
So I was wondering what you have to say on the subject. Comments, critisisims or mabie your own theories on superconductivity, I think it is a very facinating subject but I have never seen a thread on the topic, so I've made one
Look forward to your replies
People predicted room temperature superconductors were right around the corner decades ago and here we are no closer, and predicting even further in the future, like 50 years!

I predict that within a year to a year and a half we will have room temperature superconductors. They will ofcourse change many things, but then again most of the things that are coming will.

I was really interested in ORMEs for a while. As it turns out, it all seems to be a load of rubbish (at least most of it, the good bits!) and that David Whatshisname is not the most honest guy around if you get my drift. It all certainly sounded good though!
DID HUDSON FIND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE?
Since ancient Egyptian times, alchemists have worked in secret to produce something called the Philosopher's Stone, or the Elixir of Life. The materials that Hudson and other researchers have found are believed to be related to the Philosopher's Stone. The materials have been called ORMEs, monoatomic gold, white gold, white powder gold, ORMUS, m-state, AuM, microclusters, and manna.
David Hudson calls the materials he found Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements or ORMEs. He also refers to them as monoatomic elements in a high-spin state.
Since Hudson has patented his process for obtaining and identifying these elements, we would like to suggest that the terms ORMUS and m-state be used when referring to this state of matter.
The ORMUS or m-state materials are thought to be the precious metal elements in a different atomic state. The following elements have been identified in this different state of matter (these elements, with the exception of mercury, are listed in Hudson's patents):
The ORME -- related to Star Fire, and also known as The Philosopher’s Stone, the Elixir of Life, the White Powder of Gold, Ma-na or Manna -- is also an acronym for “Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements”. The phrase was coined by David Radius Hudson, who has done an enormous amount of research on the subject (of which he has in turn shared with thousands of others). The word ORME -- perhaps coincidentally, or perhaps not -- is the same as the Hebrew word which means: the “Tree of Life”.
The ORME represents a huge subject area, involving state-of-the-art chemistry, physics, and physiology, interpretations of Sumerian, Egyptian and other histories (the Anunnaki, Gods and Goddesses of the Ancient World, the Adams Family, “Prime Directive” Violations, Chronicles of Earth, etc), philosophy, Sacred Geometry, the Tree of Life and Ha Qabala -- to name only the more obvious connections. In many respects, the ORME is the connecting link between all of these subjects -- as well as a whole list of other subjects not mentioned.

You would be surprised at the viewpoints of the DoD and NASA on this...
....a superconducting material can be used in space with no issue. Just about any superconducting material becomes superconducting in space.
I know, i know...but it is something to keep in mind when reading through the tech. manuals on this stuff.
