On learning something new every day

2 October, 2007

I generally do. I notice when I don’t.

But this is just a little surreal.

When water in two beakers is exposed to a high voltage, a floating water bridge forms between the beakers. Credit: Elmar Fuchs, et al.

Wow. That is weird in a really fundamental way. How did this escape notice earlier?

    This is really strange. I wonder how much you could lengthen the water bridge were you to have enough water, space and electricity. Does the water molecule change structure when exposed to electricity?

    PS-Happy Birthday!!
