Hey! Our +Hard Science about non-newtonian fluids is on +Gizmodo! Thanks, guys! Also, I think this probably constitutes 100 shares. Get ready for a video of me being shot. Wheeeeeee! http://bit.ly/1jqujtf
The minds behind the Hard Science YouTube channel have given us a crash course in the exciting world of non-Newtonian fluids in the most awesome way possible—by biking across a pool of cornstarch that is, at once, both solid and liquid.
