Not quite, but this breakthrough could prove very significant!

The development does not exceed the previous cuprate-perovskite mark of 138 K, but neither did it require supercooling. It has long been believed that under the right conditions hydrogen could form a readily-available superconducting material. The key to the work led by John Tse is to apply high pressure to a mixture of hydrogen and silicon (silane).

I will modify this post extensively as I learn more.
