    Solid liquids - a new state of matter

    Source: skynews

    Scientists have discovered a new state of matter that allows atoms to exist as both solid and liquid at the same time.

    It was previously thought there were three states of matter: liquid, solid or gas.

    Experts were unsure whether the new state - known as a "chain-melted state" - was its own distinct state of matter or simply atoms transitioning between two stages - whether solid, liquid or gas.

    But powerful computer simulations and high-pressure and high-temperature tests carried out on metal potassium have now proven the former to be true.

    Interesting.

    But will they come when you do call for them? Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1, Act III:

    What happened to plasma as being the fourth state of matter? Did my physics teacher CON me?

    Yeah, someone's hyping something here. We've known about multiple states of matter for a while. My favorite is a supercritical fluid.

    Fun fact: temperatures and pressures on Venus are such that the entire lower atmosphere is a supercritical fluid.
