Just came accross this old BBC4 Dailymotion video about superfluid. Strange how physical properties change under different temperatures or surroundings; click here

Fascinating, watched it twice, (more fun than penguins ;-))

Certainly more fun than penguins but seriously it begs the question why we can't make sense of this phenomena? It's an old BBC documentary but nothing has become of this knowlege? Glass leaking supercooled Helium. The Helium atoms work their way through the glass atoms?

No, I thought he said 'unglazed ceramic bottom' the sides - top part was glass

and here's me thinking you were describing my dance moves......;o}}

Yes, the base was unglazed ceramic. My mistake. This is an old experiment and nothing comes of it? Wonder why the 'egg heads' can't use this information for some new invention?


Brumas,
Your're not an old experiment are you? :))
Fluid motion at your age? Hmmm.....

The jury is still out on this one ;o}}

so.. I'm supposed to sleep now am I? and banish all thoughts of Brumas's 'unglazed ceramic bottom' leaking all over the place... Hmmm
