Speculation: Room temperature superconductors : milestone to complete master of energy and matter

By getting superconducting theory right (or making enough progress from theory and better experiment), we could guide material design of room temperature superconductors, higher current density material, better electronics, better power grid, possible magnetically ground launched space craft. Room-temperature superconductors would be an important milestone on the path to complete mastery (within the actual limits …
