What Happens When You Shoot a Golf Ball at a Balloon Filled with Non-Newtonian Fluid?

Non-Newtonian fluids are liquids that are also sort of solid but also sort of neither but also sort of both? They’re very thick liquids or very giving solids, depending on what you want to call them. That’s why they’re so fun to do science experiments with. The Backyard Scientist went and filled up balloons with non-Newtonian fluids and ripped a chainsaw through them, shot a BB-gun at them, and fired off a golf ball cannon at them too. Read More >>

The Weird New Solid That’s Actually a Liquid

Usually, if you cool any substance down enough it will turn into a solid—the most stable state of matter that exists, according to traditional physics. But that could all be about to change, because researchers have discovered a weird new liquid state that's more stable than a solid crystal. Read More >>
