A few years ago, I saw a video about superconductors and it looked like anti-gravity magic. So, I decided to try and make some superconductors myself and to see if I could re-create the effect myself.
In particular, I'll be making a YBCO superconductor, which is one of the few practical high-temperature superconductors.
1) One with potential problem:
2) One I followed:

  • So if it’s frictionless and gravity isn’t effecting it then why did it come to a stop wouldn’t it continue going cause there isn’t a force to stop it or is there can you please explain that to me I love you videos btw

  • Hey, Nile Red, do you think it is possible for you to discover a way to use a superconductor to make an extremely powerful endothermic reaction that could absorb the massive energy from, say, atomic power?

  • Yes supercomputers can be created the same way though we have to have a new way of doing this instead of being stuck in our old bland ways. We must rise with the force. And control the flow of time. With respect to our people and our neighbors. Time is irrelevant at this point.

  • The ends justify the means. Im not speaking of evil i mean calculations should be done with a purpose first. You have to think of something that works before trying to learn complicated calculations. Something that connects this to other forms of science. Or something similar but different. This is just an adaptation of normal plasma lamps. This is the key to fusion energy. Do it on a larger scale. And use an armature and a generator. To some source.

  • When you turn the body into a super conductor the alternative way without killing the man you strengthen the body. The DNA twists into a more powerful and highly coagulated strand. That is alien DNA. They have a higher frequency though a more complex and developed structure. I am an alien you don't think I can learn and understand the same things you need a dead body for. Without a dead body. Thats why you suck and I don't. At times you release the pressure so the coagulation doesn't go haywire. To high of a frequency you break and shatter. Think inverse frequency. We have frequency within this world though we have an opposite more dense pattern of frequency that are on the flip side. A black hole is highly dense matter it doesn't need to coagulate. Though it is possible to create a chemical singularity without breaking space nd time it'll be a break of space and time on a different level that is smaller. When something continues to coagulate into high density it begins to gain lots of energy. Then it releases to sustain the energy at times.

  • Its because of the compression of the air in the space around the magnet, which allows the particles around the magnet to be charged which move objects within the space, the stronger the field in the atmosphere the stronger the charge nd you'll get an increase force to push the object, the fact that its superconductive, basically a cold function of plasma. Cold plasma is levitating the objects with the power of the magnet. Its just like a plasma lamp but object can be moved much better. The cold air is plasma. But the magnet is pushing air around and giving it a charge which makes the reaction more powerful. The cold air maintains its form until it dissipates off somewhere else though around the magnet It is given a charge and is extremely cold at the same time. The effect is odd. It allows you to superposition the magnet since it is highly charged and very compressed. High compression high charge superpositioning. Thats why im smarter naturally.

  • superconductor means 0 resistance and you need 0 Kelvin temperature or the so-called absolute zero. the atoms are not moving at that temp... edit: this means that electricity can run forever. you are doing something different that behaves like a superconductor but I'm not convinced that it is a superconductor. you need absolute zero temperatures.

  • I have a question that might be kind of dumb, but my chemistry knowledge isn't great so...My question is, since you are piping pure oxygen into the furnace, isn't oxygen flammable? Why doesn't the oxygen explode when it encounters the heat of the furnace?

    • @AL Coll So I actually had to try several queries before I got an answer, the one that finally led me there was "can you heat oxygen without combustion", so I'm taking credit for answering this one myself! That said, I was genuinely surprised that oxygen isn't flammable but rather just oxidizes reactions. Learn something new every day. :)

  • I think I know what went wrong. In your first run with the 5 pellets, you had the first 4 pellets have 3 grams each., but in the second run, the first 4 had 4 grams each. If you added 1 gram to each pellet except for the last one, you essentially took away from the original last pellet. Therefore, you didn't lose any grams, simply misplaced them in different pellets lol
