Meet The Swirlon – A New State of Active Matter Discovered By Physicists

For as long as most can remember, the state of matter has always been a very straightforward concept. We learn this in basic science classes when we are children, and grow up with the basic knowledge of matter, and how these stages can change.

Matter is what makes up the universe, and any new information or discoveries on this topic is very valuable. Simply put, all that we are, and all that we are surrounded by is matter.

Atoms come together and form molecules, which are the building blocks of all matter that we know today. These molecules are held together by energy and can be acted on by different types of forces. Early in 2020, all that we knew about matter was tested when a professor discovered an odd phenomenon outside the regular states of matter.

Swirlons, which are unlike any other particles and patterns we have seen, were discovered. These types of particles don’t follow the usual pattern that most forms of matter do, which makes this a great discovery. Furthermore, Swirlons can only exist in one form of matter, which is very different from other types of particles found in solid, gas, liquid, and plasma forms of matter.

In this article, we will explain all that you need to know about this new discovery of swirlons, and what is to come for the future of this wonderfully odd particle discovery.
