This Wild New Supersolid Is Three States of Matter at Once

This Wild New Supersolid Is Three States of Matter at Once | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
You learn about three or four phases of matter in school—solids, which have a shape and volume, liquids, which have a volume only, and gases and plasmas, which have neither a definite shape nor volume. But using the laws of physics, you can create incredible substances that behave nothing like the ones you learn about in chemistry. That includes a substance that behaves like both a solid crystal and a frictionless, perfectly-flowing liquid at the same time.
