We report on the observation of a superconducting phase in the itinerant electron ferromagnet UGe$$_2$$. The superconductivity observed below 1 K and in a limited pressure range immediately below the critical pressure where ferromagnetism is abruptly suppressed, would seem to arise from the same electrons that produce band magnetism. This superconductivity is most naturally understood in terms of magnetic as opposed to lattice interactions and via a spin-triplet rather than a spin-singlet pairing normally associated with nearly anti-ferromagnetic metals.
