A discovery of UNLV physicist Ashkan Salamat and colleagues from the University of Rochester will change the way we power everything from telephones to Teslas. Room-temperature superconductivity will allow current to flow through a closed loop forever, resulting in zero energy lost and billions saved. This unique, world-leading science could have major economic development implications to the U.S. energy grid - an estimated $30 Billion annually.
