Blow Up (Superconductivity)

Blow Up (Superconductivity)

"Highly Recommended! This program does a superb job of documenting the hard work, intense preparation, collaborative nature, and disappointments of high-level scientific research. It is the best program this reviewer has ever seen in conveying what is really involved in research efforts. It follows University of New South Wales superconductor researchers from Sydney to Tokyo to New Mexico as they design and test an experiment to measure superconductivity in ultra-high magnetic fields. It culminates in an experiment at Los Alamos National Laboratory using high explosives involving Australian, Japanese, and Russian researchers. The experiment lasted all of one-millionth of a second as the entire apparatus was detonated. Production values were excellent with the human side of the scientific enterprise presented in a very engaging manner." -EMRO Review
This program documents a multi-national experiment on the cutting edge of science. Research scientists traveled to New Mexico, Sydney and Tokyo in the pursuit of a new theory of basic physics. The theory is about using magnetism to produce a new form of superconductivity - the ability of a material to conduct electricity without any electrical resistance whatsoever. Using a mixture of American and Russian equipment the scientists managed to generate a huge magnetic field lasting all of one-millionth of a second before the whole thing blew apart. Although the testing was bizarre, experimental physics at its finest, getting any data at all was a real achievement. Produced by ABC International, Inc. 04/08DE Closed-Captioned JSCA 30 min.
