    This is a 1922 on the Theoretical Remarks on Superconductivity. The amazing insight eventually led to the BCS theory in 1957. You wouldn't BELIEVE who the author is! I'm not going to tell you who it is. You will have to click the link to find out!

    And people think he did only one thing....

    He was just speculating.

    In 1922, they did not even have the concept of electrons as a degenerate Fermi gas. That idea was first worked out by Sommerfeld in 1928.
