The finding could help make fuel cells for electric cars cheaper and more practical... The new material meets a benchmark for hydrogen fuel cells set five years ago that 'we thought nobody would ever meet,' adds Hubert Gasteiger, a visiting professor of mechanical engineering at MIT."

Chiao and co ask how big the effect of a gravitational wave on a thin superconducting sheet is compared to the effect on an ordinary conducting sheet. The answer? 42 orders of magnitude bigger." Maybe we're getting closer to the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything. Or perhaps closer to the question.
