I`m impressed. Amazing how it stays on the track even when turned upside-down...until the thing warms up again, at which point it would fall off. It`s probably safer to have a train traveling on top of the track, instead of hanging from it, anyway.

LoL that was cool but I love how they were like "oh it`ll even stay if we hold it up side down.." with a hand underneath it.. that`s like when you buy a tv.. the salesperson is like "buy this one it`s amazing and great and works like a charm!" and then offers you the extended warranty. it was nifty anyways..

"how come science posts get a low amount of comments? they`re normally better than the other stuff on here"

Same like poo and stuff reason that people and poo who like post here and stuff can spell and poo like booooring grammar stuff dudezzzzz totaly pwned and poo like stuff wtf??!!! Stoopid freakin dumbass poo like must be Euro faggot dumbass yellow teeth Brits anyway man. Like, where`s the dude like, totally wiping out on his skateboard or BMX anyway?

Whoa that`s amazing. I bet my grandkids will be riding it in Disney World instead of to school though. I wonder if theres any way they could use the field conducted to produce power = to the energy needed to keep the magnets that cold... Amazing

Kyur - It would create a black hole into a parallel universe!

So they don`t need rockets

They can just use the current, magnetic method of propulsion where the track has magnets that switch polarities to attracth the train before it passes them and repel the train afterwards, not much power used, and almost all of it is put into propulsion.

To Liam:
If you`re asking if there are any ELEMENTS that are liquids at room temperature, there are only two: bromine and mercury. Bromine is brown and looks like bile, not to mention, it causes an allergic reaction in many people(don`t try this!). On the other hand, mercury is very heavy, silvery, toxic, and wet. By wet I mean that it WILL NOT soak into ANYTHING. If you spill it on a shag rug and tilt the rug on it`s side, the mercury will simply slide off.

So there is no liquid that is naturally at -whatever that does not warm up?

"Now that is damn cool. It is free really if you live in a cold country, viva la Siberia!"
uh... not quite. in order for something to become supercooled, there has to be at an extremely low temperature. (thus the liquid nitrogen)
even at the north or south poles, you wouldnt produce that cold of a temperature.

I gotta get me some liquid nitro...imagine the possiblities

it really wouldn`t be free. You sill need a way to propel the train and with out friction it be more then likely some form of rocket.

Great video, wish it was longer.

i knew about this a few years ago i didnt know you could turn the track on its side or even upside down

wooo hooo!! i just invented super conductors that work at room temperature! yay!

uh, hold it - just made a mess with the tomato ketchup again. damn.

Or if you want to buy the damn nitrogen.

"In this case it`s free." Not if you have to refigerate the magnet to effing cold.

It is a pretty cool trick, but unfortunately keeping something THAT cold for prolonged periods of time is just too hard for our level of scientific know-how. Like they said, if someone could produce the effect without the supercool temperature, they`d be one rich mofo.

That is some crazy stuff but what happens if 2 of those things gets close to one another?

It repels and attracts at the same time... Crazy voo-doo sh¡t.
