Water, Energy, and Life: Fresh Views From the Water’s Edge

Dr. Gerald Pollack of the University of Washington presents an absolutely awesome lecture on the nature of water.

It may surprise you to know that modern science really does not have a good understanding of what water actually is and why it behaves the way it does.  It turns out that water actually takes on the form of a liquid crystal when it is bounded by air or a positively charged layer of material.

The professor explains why this finding is so important and what it means for science.

Dr. Gerald Pollack, UW professor of bioengineering, has developed a theory of water that has been called revolutionary. The researcher has spent the past decade convincing worldwide audiences that water is not actually a liquid. Pollack explains his fascinating theory in this 32nd Annual Faculty Lecture.
