  • A week ago we reported that physicists from South Korea's Quantum Energy Research Center and the College of William and Mary claimed to have discovered the Holy Grail of physics - a superconductor with the potential to change the world
  • Now the internet is in a frenzy over it and top physicists, as well as amateurs, are trying to replicate and verify the findings
  • Here are key details:
  1. New superconductor is called LK-99
  2. Unique breakthrough that doesn't need extreme heat and pressure to operate
  3. Operates at room temperature and ordinary pressure to convey electricity with no resistance
  4. Floats over a magnet
  5. Boosts any technology that relies upon and operates on electricity or magnets
  6. Huge potential impact like enabling widespread use of Maglev (levitating) trains, quantum computers and highly efficient electric grids
  7. At least 12 top global labs, like the US' Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and China's Shenyang Lab are working to verify the discovery
  • If the superconductor is verified to work, top physicists say this innovation will change the world as we know it.

  • Acura's ZDX will be Acura's first electric vehicle
  • Here's what we know:
  1. Will be in 2024 model lineup
  2. Acura says it will be the quickest and most powerful vehicle in its history
  3. Will debut August 17th at the Monterey Car Week
  4. The ZDX has a long hood and squareback SUV shape
  5. It's rumored to have a 340 hp electric motor with a 12.0 kWh battery to power rear-wheel drive 
  6. ZDX Type S, the high-performance model, will have a 500-hp output and all-wheel-drive
  7. It will ride on the Ultium battery platform
  8. Mid-August is the scheduled reveal in Monterey.

  • In a new study from Sweden's Lund University, AI demonstrated its impressive usefulness by outperforming top radiologists in the detection of breast cancer from mammograms
  • Here are some details:
  • A team of radiologists and AI reviewed mammography scans of 80,000 women
  • AI discovered 20% more cases of breast cancer than the radiologists did
  • AI also took 44% less time to do the reviews
  • The researchers say AI could cut the workload of radiologists in half
  • AI could make the doctors far more efficient
  • AI also helps to prioritize urgent cases
  • These findings are very significant because according to the National Cancer Institute, 20% of breast cancer cases are missed by mammograms.
