Episode 79: Changing Phases
Everything falls into one of three phases of matter: solid, liquid, or gas. Or does it? Sometimes it’s a bit more ambiguous. In this episode of Distillations, first we take a look at dry ice, which skips a phase. Next, we examine the atomic structure of glass, which surprisingly looks more like a super-cooled liquid than a solid. And finally, we meet Distillations’ new executive producer Michal Meyer to discuss her love of science and her plans for the show. Chemical Agent: Dry Ice.
