Musk’s Hyperloop Has Nothing on This Quantum Levitation Race Track

He might have billions of dollars, a company that promises to revolutionise space travel, and an upgraded full head of hair, but Elon Musk’s Hyperloop will never be as cool as this superconducting quantum levitation Möbius strip race track created by students at Ithaca College’s Low Temperature Physics Lab.

These Cancer Cells Are Being Levitated Using Magnets

Magnetic levitation isn’t anything new: you’ve probably seen frogs made to float and maybe even trains hovering above their rails. But now scientists have gained enough subtle control over such forces that they can be used to levitate single cells, too. Read More >>

How Many Engineering Students Does It Take To Create a Levitating Glowing Light Bulb?

Just one, as Chris Reigler, an electrical engineering student from the University of Queensland in Australia, discovered. His floating LevLight project could one day revolutionise the way we change burnt out light bulbs, and make thousands of "how many X does it take to change a light bulb?" jokes completely moot.
