Probably not much for now. Since a pressure of 267 gigapascals (about 2.6 million times the atmospheric pressure) is necessary to maintain superconductivity.
And the atomic structure of the material is still unknown.
But of course, many researchers will likely rush to explore this further.

(But if these (small!) Problems are solved, it probably means nothing else than that we are approaching level I on the Kardashev scale.)

Yes exciting times, JD!  I remember we have been talking about trying to attain this (and cold fusion lol) since back in the 80s!  Do you think we will reach level 1 within our lifetimes?  Do you think that would be controllable fusion at reasonable temperatures?

Jupiter's satellites are pushing Venus from its orbit and they are as huge as all nine planets together, so maybe one day they could push the Earth from its planet thus leave it without the conditions for living.

I think he got the idea from the book 'Worlds in Collision' by Immanuel Velikovsky.

Water found on the sunlit side of the moon!

quantity is about equal to a bottle of water

What do you guys think of this?  Might be time to restart my previous discussion about what artifacts we might leave and where to leave them for them to survive weathering in case humanity goes extinct and how long it might take for humanity to evolve again from primates.

According to this, this bird went extinct 136,000 years ago and evolution caused it to re-evolve twice?

I think this could only happen because the living conditions for the flying ancestors of these flightless birds have remained the same. These birds became extinct because the atoll they lived on was inundated when the sea level rose.
After the water receded, the same living conditions were restored. So similar birds could develop again.
I doubt that a new human race can develop from the primates.
First, because the living conditions have changed and, second, because the common ancestor of apes and humans no longer exists.

Thats a wonderful point, JD!  I was wondering the same thing...humans couldn't evolve from chimps or bonobos!  And you dont see those creatures evolving to becoming hominids- because they are already well-suited to the environment they live in!

Well, given millions of years, something might to technological levels again, but it likely wouldn't be human?

Cornell astronomer Lisa Kaltenegger and Lehigh University’s Joshua Pepper have identified 1,004 main-sequence stars – similar to our sun – that might contain Earth-like planets in their own habitable zones within about 300 light-years of here, which should be able to detect Earth’s chemical traces of life
