In Tiny Spaces, Boiling Water Stays Solid

A new study shows that confining water to very small spaces can keep it solid past even its normal boiling point.

Using carbon nanotubes, researchers from MIT report that they kept water from turning into a liquid, and even a gas, at far higher temperatures than normal. While not technically ice, this solid water could be used to create new types of wires that take advantage of solidified water’s unique properties.
