Fans of Kurt Vonnegut will be shocked to hear physicists have created of new phase of water.
Physicists have created a new form of water, one that stays liquid at hundreds of degrees C below zero. This novel state of H2O occurs when water molecules are trapped inside a nanotube (see drawing), a recently-discovered form of carbon that is a close relative of the Buckyball (see the Physics in Action feature Tubular Peas).
The end is nigh!
