It is always amazing to browse through YouTube, specially if you are looking for science material. Here is an example of superconductivity: take a superconductor and a magnet at room temperature. Nothing happens. Now cool down the superconductor using liquid nitrogen. The superconductor starts “superconducting” and boom! here comes in the Meissner effect. As always, a picture (movie) is better than a page of equations to show how wonderful physics is.
My name is Esteban Moro and I am a researcher at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in the GISC group. My field of research are complex systems. The fact that the systems under study are complex does not mean that its behavior cannot be understood or anticipated. I believe research must be interdisciplinary and close to real life problems and because of that, I do research in social networks, financial markets or viral marketing (complex enough!).
