Super! Conductors!!

Alas I had forgotten my cell-phone at home, otherwise I would have first clips of floating magnets - but this way I was even more motivated to carry back with me the heavy magnetic circular track which was offered as an item of loan by my hero of the day Prof. Gerfried Hilscher from the solid-state physics dept. of TU Vienna, who is also supplying the super-conducting disc for the floating experiment. So on top of flying latex-bugs (see post below) we'll have our own little suspension railway next Wednesday!

... With Zeljko, WerkzeugH's chef, I already discussed what to do with the left over liquid nitrogen - we have something in mind like this.

Wed May 2nd / 6pm Workshop / 8pm Martini hour / WerkzeugH
