Ice, Ice, Baby! Something Interesting to Cool You Down on a Hot Summer Day

Did you know that, on a molecular level, the surface of ice is actually more like a liquid than a solid?

This post was brought to you in honor of my close friend, who defended her PhD today. Congratulations, Dr. Sumi Wren!
