In the news: Water freezes at boiling point

There's a fascinating story in the news today - researchers at MIT discovered that it's possible to keep water in a frozen state, even at temperatures above the boiling point. According to the researchers, this is done by placing the water in super tiny cardon nanotubes. Because the tubes are so small, the water remains so still that it's considered to be in a solid state. 

This is pretty exciting news, and could lead to all kinds of advances in medicine, robotics, energy and others. We're excited to see what happens.
