We demonstrate that the broadband divergence of the photonic density of states in hyperbolic metamaterials leads to giant increase in radiative heat transfer, beyond the limit set by the Stefan-Boltzmann law. The resulting radiative thermal “hyper-conductivity” may approach the heat conductivity via electrons and phonons in regular solids.
