    States of Matter

    So, there's solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. Are there any other states? And what are sources of plasma besides stars? Is fire plasma?

    Fire isn't plasma, it's just visible heat/chemicals released from some oxidation reactions.

    More states are predicted to exist at extremely low temperatures. No idea if they have actually been demonstrated in an experiment yet.

    The wikipedia entry has a really good list:

    Though oddly it lumps my favorite, the supercritical fluid, under gas.

    I believe that one is called a bose constant, but you have to be near subzero to get it.
