The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (or MIT as all the kids call it) is at the forefront of all sorts of research and technology. They've been responsible for all sorts of discoveries, breakthroughs, and innovations, and it looks like they've done it again. Gases, Liquids, and Solids, eat your respective hearts out. Extreme Tech The QSL in picture form. But why does this matter, well, matter? Well, this discovery has the potential to boost data storage and communications, and it could foster higher-temperature superconductors. Since a development like this is so unprecedented, there may be other benefits that we simply can't see foresee yet. We're looking at a brand new frontier here. Plus, seeing this unique form of magnetism is also pretty cool, though I'll be the first to admit I don't fully understand it. Seriously, fucking magnets - how do they work?
