If the cooling agent is liquid nitrogen (LN2), the temperature of the block will be at around -320.5 F degrees. As far as I know, silicon will acquire magnetic properties at superconductivity temperatures (around 2.5 Kelvin degrees). If, in this experiment, the cylinder is made of silicon, then the cooling agent could be liquid helium.

What do you think about this? Enjoy, watching it!

This is a 6.15 mpeg file:

(Nice experiment on superconductivity of crystalline networks in extreme temperature conditions)

Does anybody know where is this clip coming from (source)?
