    Clearly still some way to go in the field of superconductivity but, another worthwhile step on the way to resistance free electronics for all.

    Missing a leading 'h' on the second 'as'?

    Did you mean to write "won't" instead of "would"?

    2 million?? Holy moly, if anything it's really impressive that -13C is achievable at that pressure haha. I guess the next step rather than looking for higher temperatures at that same pressure, better to find more realistic pressures?

    Yes to both - I'll go fix, ta!

    EDIT: Actually, looks like someone's already beaten me to the second correction - it's showing as "The team's work won't be leaving the lab just yet, though" here.

    YBCO-based tapes are starting to roll out to production use, and that's LN2-cooled (Tc 92k, or -181°C). For high pressures, the previous record was 203 K (−70 °C) for Hydrogen Sulfide at >200GPa.
