Okay let’s address the elephant in the room here. And by the elephant I mean the fluid in the room.
Fluids are just a bit odd. They never really do what they are supposed to and even with science being as good as it is today (and it is good, they can grow ears on mice and stuff!) liquids still manage to flummox and bamboozle scientists. (I deserve props for managing to use both bamboozle and flummox in a sentence!)
These wonderful characteristics prompt adventurous scientists to tinker with them and to try and make new, even quirkier liquids. Being a scientist sounds so much fun right now!
One of their most recent attempts at messing with stuff resulted in a fluid that really doesn’t act how you’d expect anything to act. When you push this liquid forward, it moves backwards! Crazy, right? It’s been dubbed a superfluid and with properties like that I’m really not surprised!
