Independent verification is crucial about material LK –99

About the editorial :


The editorial is about recent claim by some South Korean researchers that they have discovered that a material LK 99 is a superconductor at room temperature.


About recent claim about superconductor:

South Korean researcher via two preprint papers uploaded to the five arXiv repository ( An open source research paper repository for research papers ) claimed that they found LK 99 to be superconductor at room temperature and ambient temperature.


About superconductivity

Every wire or material which carries electricity from one place to other has some resistance . Lots of electrical energy is lost due to this resistance in conducting material . Superconductor has no resistance and hence loss of electricity through such materials is zero .  No superconducting material was discovered  which be superconductor at room temperature and ambient pressure . There are materials though which act like a supercomputer at temperature below about 250 degrees to zero  and even higher pressure . Research is underway to find material to be superconductor at room temperature and ambient temperature. This will save lots of energy and money  in transmission of electricity , computer chips manufacturing , mago v trains speed will increase . It will be also be helpful in research and development in Nuclear fusion .


Verification of recent claims


 The claims should be verified by researchers , those claiming should provide all their data for verification .
