FINALLY?

by using rare-earth barium copper oxide (REBCO) superconducting tapes instead of copper, high-magnetic field coils can be created at a fraction of the size.

Record-Breaking Superconductor Works At Highest Temperature Yet
 
http://www.iflscienc...-superconductor
 
Previous record for warmest superconductor was –110°C, this one makes –70°C.
Pretty cool because if this trend keeps up we might be able to use it in smaller applications, perhaps even household or computing.

 
How they made it is the sick part though:
 

.... hydrogen sulfide [...] was crushed in a diamond anvil with up to 1.6 million times atmospheric pressure to turn it into a superconducting material.

Early stages of human HIV vaccine trials. 

http://www.baltimore...1007-story.html

TL;DR:

HIV changes the proteins on its surface so the immune system can't catch it. But apparently, just as it is getting ready to attack a cell, it exposes some proteins that are common in all strains of HIV, so this is what the researchers are trying to target.

They can use gravity astronomy to detect supernovas hours before they hit earth, that's sick!
