Levitating Superconductor on a Möbius strip

Take a closer look at one of the favourite demos from the 2012 Christmas Lectures, bringing together a levitating superconductor and a bewildering Möbius strip made from over 2,000 magnets. The super-conducting boat whizzes along the track with the remarkable properties of the superconducting material Yttrium barium copper oxide which allows it to seemingly float both above and below the track.
