Why I donate to SuperC
In this picture, I’m rowing a boat on the lake Osmanki in Northern Finland. My ancestors have lived by that lake for four hundred years according to written records, and probably longer. They had to struggle with famine, disease, high child-mortality and war. Yet they took into use new technologies, built better farming and housing infrastructure, promoted societal progress such as school for every child and, in general, were hard-working decent people. It is due to this spirit of believing in the good and investing in the future that our lives now are a bit better. I want to be a worthy link in such a chain. Therefore, I started the SuperC project: room temperature superconductivity would offer tremendous technological progress and help with the major struggle of our times, climate change. I have also decided to donate to SuperC one thousand Euros for every one million Euro funding that we get. In 2023, I was happy to make my first donation.
