In this article the author comments on one study on superconductivity in Magnesium-doped InN epilayers. He highlights the study's conclusion that superconductivity is intrinsic property of InN basing on the existence of metallic InN nanoparticles. He criticizes such study for it opens several doors for question. He describes it to be inconsistent because it does not explain the nature of the metallic InN nanoparticles as well as to where their superconductivity originates.
