Description

As featured on the Nov. 9 2011episode of the Colbert Report! Link: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/401902/november-09-2011/americone-dream-of-the-future

From the Low Temperature Lab: A flux-pinning enhanced superconducting puck levitates above and is pinned to a magnetic figure-8 track. This demonstrates the quantum physical effect of superconductivity and the Meissner Effect as well as magnetic flux pinning. The puck is accelerated using the motors from a toy car track set.
