Summary: arXiv article reporting new superconducting material - LaH10

I have actually been outside when the temperatures dipped below 250K. Although the pressure wasn't 170GPa.
The discovery is being reported in arXiv here:
https://arxiv.org/abs/1812.01561

PDF: https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1812/1812.01561.pdf

It looks like most of the work was done out of Max-Planck-Institut fur Chemie, Germany
This is reported in a Nature's News and Views article, and has been published. See first reference at the end of the article.
