Quantum Wires: From Space to the Plains?
Jack Uldrich: Earlier today it was announced that Rice University was slated to receive an $11 million grant from NASA to produce a one-meter long prototype "quantum wire" power cable for the space agency by 2009. NASA is interested in such a device because not only can quantum wires conduct electricity 10 times faster than cooper; more importantly -- at least from NASA's perspective -- is that they weigh about one-sixth as much.
