Watch this video to see the science demonstration I orchestrated when Adam Savage from Mythbusters visited the makerspace I helped start.
In this demonstration of quantum levitation, we cooled a YCBO superconductor with liquid Nitrogen before hiding it inside a Millennium Falcon model and sending it flying around a magnetic track, leaving a wake of blue energy fields behind it.
When I heard Adam Savage was going to visit, I knew we had to do something special. I also knew it might be my only opportunity to use the phrase “quantum levitation” in a project. The next step seemed fairly obvious.
