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 ever.

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

If God is Light, we just shaped God into a liquid?

That is brilliant never thought of it that way

You know the 5th state is the BEC. You say so yourself.
Why on earth do you use a false statement as title?
The real news here is they created a superfluid at room temperature.

Does liquid light have barrels like this?



Light waves.

WTF is BEC?

Some leaps made in the claim of liquid. I am thinking of things like ghost and orbs.

Wtf? Bose-Einstein-Condensate. What #ing else could it be?

Im Irish im # at abbreviations. I only recently discovered that lol was used in reference to a computer game - league of legends . I honestly thought BEC was a reference to the Brandon Ebel Company. A christian record company

Your title is still a false statement.

Let me be the first to welcome Andrew Stapleton of sciencealert.com to 1922. Interesting that the article does not mention the "Compton Effect" one time, but so perfectly describes it.
