Physicists create fluid with 'negative mass'

It is correct that this makes Newton's law a theory, or is it a pile of doo doo now?

Mass has gravity. If it's negative, what does that do to gravity?

No it doesn't. It's basically just doing the opposite. A mirror if you will.

This isnt the first time newtons laws have been broken. But they apply in most circumstances and still valid. For example we created a situation here that could never occur in nature and only in a lab.

Think it would depend on the amount of energy that is put in to it.

An object of a certain weight would have to have an equal amount of negative mass to create buoyancy.

Only guessing though.

Seems like anti gravity, or at least anti-force.

The story said it was pushed and went the opposite way.

Slap some magnets inside that fluid, place inside a copper wire lined cylinder or sphere and apply force, harness the energy output.

Sounds like fun.

Not to mention, this could maybe even work for Inertia dampeners.

Possibly even bullet proofing...

Got to get it to almost absolute zero, it sounds a little more difficult than mags and copper.

Sounds like another case of sci-fi being prophetic re: body armor a la E. E. Smith's 'Gray Lensman'. Or, for the RTS inclined, 'Iron Curtain', anyone? 'Guardian GI' - "We're UNCRUSHABLE!" - EA Games. Sometimes, life does imitate art.

Funny how the science is catching star trek and other newer forms of entertainment.

This is kind of misleading they created negative mass. Most mass of course is positive so if i apply force using matter and negative matter will be attracted to it. Think of a magnet positive is attracted to negative. So if i use a laser to apply force instead of being pushed away from the ased it would travel towards it.

Super cool discovery literally.
But to those who are looking to exploit this principal there are some hurdles to over come like keeping the substance at near absolute zero .

The liquid consists of rubidium atoms cooled to a temperature barely greater than absolute zero. The cooled atoms formed a Bose-Einstein condensate, a phase of matter characterized by slow-moving particles that behave like waves. The matter behaves like a superfluid, meaning its particles move in unison without sacrificing energy.

Science + imagination - who would have thought? Innovation is finally making a comeback. Now, if only they could look into Hamel's magnetics, Tesla's counterposed E and H fields, and light-frequency pulsed magnetic fields. Maybe we could find a way to truly privatize travel, space and otherwise.

It would seem that the phrase 'Laws were meant to be broken' is True.

Good find

How?

Newton's second law of motion can be formally stated as follows: The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

Put it in a bowl and throw cereal at it. The person with the most cereal in the bowl at the end wins.

Of course it is, but I'm far to lazy and preoccupied to go into that level of detail.

More or less was meant to get other's minds spinning on said applications.

Notice the "same direction" part? Reverse that and you get the mirror effect. In quantum world there are matter and anti matter and they compliment each other.

Here is an article from science daily on the topic..

Washington State University physicists have created a fluid with negative mass, which is exactly what it sounds like. Push it, and unlike every physical object in the world we know, it doesn't accelerate in the direction it was pushed. It accelerates backwards.
