Scientists Discover a New State of Matter in Chicken Eyes
Scientists have discovered a system of matter unlike anything they've ever seen before, capable of being both crystal-like and a liquid. The new matter is called "disordered hyperuniformity," it may drastically change the way we can design materials, and, oh yeah, it's only found in chicken eyes.Read on...
Large Hadron Collider Creating Never-Before-Seen Kind Of MatterA contingent of MIT researchers working with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) think they've found something no one has ever seen in the depths of the reams of data provided by the LHC's particle smashups, and no, it's not the Higgs boson, because jeez, you guys, there's more to life than the Higgs boson, you know? By studying collision patterns in heavy metals, researchers think they may be seeing the first signs of a theorized state of matter known as color glass condensate, which could be the result of particles colliding at near-light speed entering a state of quantum entanglement, becoming inexplicably connected to one another.Read on...
