Ice-nine

1/14/2016

  Imagine an engineered variant of water that: remains frozen at temperatures below 114.4 Fahrenheit; and instantly freezes any naturally occurring water with which it comes in contact.

    Such a substance would capable of permanently freezing Earth's rivers, lakes and oceans. It would also freeze humans on contact.

    This liquid, called ice-nine, was described in Kurt Vonnegut's Cats Cradle.
