    Excellent artice onedomino. I can't imagine a liquid universe at 2,000,000,000,000 degrees!

    It was interesting. Just messing with you.

    It is a shame their research has been cut to only 12 weeks.

    Imagine the possibilities of what they could find if they could research year round.

    "The resulting liquid is almost 'perfect': it has a very low viscosity and is so uniform that it looks the same from any angle.

    The researchers now hope to measure the heat capacity, viscosity and even the speed of sound in the quark liquid. "

    Maybe some smart than I am can tell us what this will do for us.
