Note the applications – high speed maglev trains, energy weapons, helps towards various ways to achieve commercial nuclear fusion, various space propulsion applications, medical imaging devices (MRI, NMR) and more
The energy in a 100 Tesla magnet is about the same as TNT by weight.
Tripling the magnetic field increases the energy by ten times
We will have the wires and magnets for the applications
Superconducting engines will be several towers smaller and lighter with more energy density.
This enables better electric planes, electric helicopters, electric ships, electric cars and trucks.
There is also the potential for ground breaking capabilities with nuclear fusion and space propulsion. Not just revolutionizing existing products but enabling new capabilities.
