We’ve told you water is weirder than you think, and that there are potentially over 70,000 different forms of ice. But there’s something we haven’t told you about yet… amorphous ice, a weird, glassy, unusual and, well, amorphous form of ice. It’s found on icy moons and comets and maybe even in your cocktail shaker… if you’re making industrial strength cocktails! Follow us on a journey through water, ice, and maybe even some superionic structures.
