Study finds behavior of the turbulent flow of superfluids is opposite that of ordinary fluids A superfluid moves like a completely frictionless liquid, seemingly able to propel itself without any hindrance from gravity or surface tension. The physics underlying these materials — which appear to defy the conventional laws of physics — has fascinated scientists for decades. Think of the assassin T-1000 in the movie "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"...

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Black holes are incredibly difficult objects to understand, partially because their very existence seemingly challenges the physical laws of the Universe. Because of their extreme nature, various peculiarities arise that give scientists pause. One such case was proposed by Stephen Hawking, the famed cosmologist, back in the 1970s. He noted that because of the extreme gravity that exists within the event horizon of a...
