For those who missed it in CHE 305, here’s the critical point of water again:

The “DECLIC high temperature insert” mentioned at the beginning of the video is a DEvice for the study of Critical LIquids and Crystallization designed for use in the study of phase transitions in microgravity aboard the ISS.

Does anyone remember what Superman’s home planet looked like?  All full of crystals and light.  Well, they’ve just “unearthed” it!  The Naica Cave in Mexico, home to GIGANTIC selenite crystals, was discovered by accident by local miners.  Interestingly this is one of the first crystal caves with crystals of this magnitude to be found, however researchers believe that the Earth’s crust could be full of such wonders.  Check out a video of Professor Iain Stewart having a look around.  Also see pictures here.
