Scientists Make Huge Magnet Breakthrough

 

Scientists are very excited about a new breakthrough - the first ever non-metallic magnet that works at room temperature.

This could have a serious impact on the electronics business, because these kinds of magnets are semiconducting, and both lighter and more flexible than their magnetic counterparts, leading to possible innovations in storage devices and chips.

The discovery was made completely by accident, by a scientist who was testing buckyballs, strange conglomerations of carbon. Before this discovery, the highest temperature at which non-metallic magnets would work was -255 Celsius.
