The only thing I know about helium is that in its gas form it makes you sound like Joe Pasquale on acid, or the Bee Gees, when you suck it in from a balloon.
It seems however, that it’s strange powers don’t stop there, and when it is in its liquid form, and cooled down to near absolute zero, it becomes what scientists call a superfluid.
All of a sudden, a glass container, which would ordinarily be able to hold water or any other liquid inside, becomes more like a bucket with lots of little holes in it.
It’s amazing stuff, and it’s left me wanting to know more about the phenomenon of superfluids.
Like so much of science, once you start to learn, your thirst for knowledge become insatiable.
