Mention the world “liquid” and the first thoughts that pops into many minds is “water”. Continue reading for two liquids you can admire, but most certainly not consume — safely. Click here for first picture in gallery.

Magnetic Fluid

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. Sachiko Kodama and Minako Takeno show us what Ferrofluid — a liquid that becomes strongly polarized in the presence of a magnetic field — is really capable of with this amazing demonstration.


Superfluid is when helium-3 or helium-4 defeats friction, reaching a point where the liquid has zero viscosity, zero entropy, and infinite thermal conductivity. Practical applications include: gyroscopes for measuring gravitational effects and in satellites.
