Water May Exist as Two Very Different Liquids Simultaneously
“Scientists have long pondered the strange qualities of water, and researchers in Sweden have just found that at room temperature it might at once exist as two distinct liquids with differing densities and molecular structures.”
Work on Exotic Matter Wins Physics Nobel
“This year’s laureates opened the door on an unknown world where matter can assume strange states. They have used advanced mathematical methods to study unusual phases, or states, of matter, such as superconductors, superfluids or thin magnetic films.”
Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
