Its 6pm on a Saturday afternoon here in the UK. Van Morrison is singing about his Tupelo Honey and I;m sat here reading an article on Liquid Light
"AN Angel of the first Degree"
In June 2017, physicists achieved 'liquid light' at room temperature for the first time ever, making this strange form of matter more accessible than
This matter is both a superfluid, which has zero friction and viscosity, and a kind of Bose-Einstein condensate - sometimes described as the fifth
state of matter - and it allows light to actually flow around objects and corners.
Regular light behaves like a wave, and sometimes like a particle, always travelling in a straight line. That's why your eyes can't see around corners
or objects. But under extreme conditions, light can also act like a liquid, and actually flow around objects
There is so much we don't know about Light
