Physicists Observe Incredible ‘Quantum Tornados’ Formed From Ultra-Cold Atoms

Scientists have observed a stunning demonstration of¬†classic physics giving way to quantum behavior, manipulating a fluid of ultra-cold sodium atoms into a distinct tornado-like formation. ¬† Particles behave differently on the quantum level, in part because at this point their interactions with each other hold more power over them than the energy from their movement. … Read more
