Your Guide to the Best Superconducting Wines.
Red wine can efficiently turn iron compounds into superconductors, a finding Japanese researchers stumbled upon at a boozy party last year. Now they have figured out how. Tartaric acid in the wine — especially in a French Beaujolais, from the gamay grape — seems to be the culprit.

Physicists at Japan’s National Institute for Materials Science were experimenting with an iron compound that becomes superconductive after being soaked in liquid, and they decided to try it with beer, sake, whisky and wine. They found wine worked best, but no one could tell why. Now the team has tried it again, uncorking six different types to see which one was the most effective. They used wines made from gamay, pinot noir, merlot, carbernet sauvignon and sangiovese grapes, and it turns out the best was the gamay. Specifically, a 2009 Beajoulais from the Paul Beaudet winery in central France. They posted their paper to the arXiv preprint server.

For good measure, they also tested white wine, beer, Japanese sake, whisky and shochu. All these potent potables were better at inducing superconductivity than water, but none was as effective as the red wine.

The researchers measured various characteristics of the wine and found that the samples with a higher concentration of tartaric acid had a higher superconducting capability. To test this, they isolated tartaric acid and put it in some water. It worked, but again, not as well as red wine, suggesting there’s something special about the stuff that makes iron, tellurium and sulfur want to behave a very specific way. Cheers to that!


This would be great.
but I wish it said more?
science is a funny thing.
it is some time best Not to follow the rule.
accidentes in science can some times
come up with the best things.

rochelle salts can be use'd in electronics and wine making.

But it dont say what tempreture the wine was cooled to?

Becuase if it was near absolute zero then it not really a discovery as alot fo things turn into super conductors around that tempreture

Tried to read original article.
Link does not work.
Interesting but want to know more before commenting is yours still active?

Love to see the requisition list for their next grant application. I'm sure they will have to do a VERY thorough "literature" survey, ahem.

I wonder if this doesn't link to the ORMUS content of the wine?

Here is a list of natural substances that had significant quantities of ORMUS in them, grap juice being one of the highest:

The tartaric acid could just be an interesting correlate.

i wonder what happens if someone makes their body very alkaline and eats healthy, and drinks alot of red wine, and wears those "live forever magnet rings" all the time?

will they become a human magnet that is REALLY healthy?

what if one of those magnetic people that are mentioned on shows that revolve around rare or bizarre abilities, tries these things?

that would be interesting.........

Cut a grape almost in half, leaving the bottom of the grape connected..... Now pop it in the microwave for a minute on high and peer through the window..... grape stuff!!

If you drink a lot of this wine.
will you think very fast?
or will it just seem like it.
