What else can a liquid do you ask?

So while science has found a way to throttle the velocity of light back to less than one billionth of its top speed using a liquid, they’ve also found a liquid that is actually more stable than solid crystal. It seems the older I get, the more life gets turned upside down.

The story can be found over at Live Science in the article “Bizarre Liquid More Stable Than Solid Crystal” by Jesse Emspak. Now why the experiment was apparently done with a computer, the next step is experimenting with real materials

Cool!

Slow to a crawl yet faster than the speed of light

As I’m getting ready to turn in after a long day, I’m really starting to slow down. In fact, I’m just about to crawl into bed but probably not at the speed of light. However, according to his article “Light Slowed to a Crawl in Liquid Crystal Matrix” over at Science Daily, that could change.

It seems that researchers from France and China have found a way to throttle the velocity of light back to less than one billionth of its top speed. So maybe I can slow down to a crawl and yet go faster than the speed of light.

Night, night!
