Truck depots will just relocate to areas where they can be directly off the highway.
Expensive and difficult are different.
Care to show any credible studies that show this to be a problem?
Superconductive materials have 0 resistance which means there is no energy lost to heat.
As for how easy these temperatures are to hold, see your local hospital and ask them how easy it is for them to maintain their MRI machine's superconductive magnets.
What understanding the underlying properties of super conductive materials allows is for us to perhaps engineer some meta-materials that hold such properties at room temperature.
Actually, 138 K
They are the states that had laws on the books?
Do you know why private companies seem to always do things right from an economic sense? because those that don't do things right die off. Government can just do things wrong for a lot longer....that does not mean government WILL or does anything wrong and it certainly does not mean private industry does anything correctly.
