Long story made short, some time ago, I saw a TV show that was some kind of futuristic crime drama. I don’t remember what the show was and it’s not terribly important to me to identify it. What matters is that the MacGuffin was stored at super-cooled temperatures. When the bad guys tried to recover the device (which was the size of a small car) they removed the lid from the container, lowered the hook from a crane down and connected it to lifting straps that were already attached to the device and stored at the same super cooled temperatures. Even at such temperatures, these straps were still strong and flexible enough to enable the crane to lift a mass of several hundred kilo.
Do such materials actually exist in our world today? What’s my best bet for strong, flexible materials at such temperatures?
