Space Station Research Exposing The Salty Truth Of Supercritical Water Transitions
2013-07-23 11:49:23

NASA There is a moment when everything changes. Something familiar crosses a boundary and suddenly behaves in new ways. Take water for example. In middle school science class, you probably learned about saturation points when adding salt to a liquid. Or you discovered the importance of phase changes when going from boiling to steam or from freezing to ice. That moment of change is now being studied at a new level in space. At sea level, water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit, and both...
