      Applications of Superconductivity

      When certain metals are cooled almost to absolute zero, they become superconductive, that is, their electrical resistance disappears. This remarkable phenomenon is now being turned to technological purposes...

      The Inner Structure of the Proton

      There is something small and hard inside. These objects, which may be the particles called quarks, are seen most clearly when a violent collision of particles gives rise to a "jet" of debris...
