Argon Ice

By Anupum Pant

Like you can heat water enough to make steam, you can cool a gas enough to make it into a solid. Although it’s pretty hard to do it for most gases, some gases like argon can be solidified fairly easily (using liquid nitrogen). Here’s how an Argon ice looks like and how it melts, or more appropriately how it sublimes because the liquid state is to small to be perceptible. At some angles you do see some liquid argon dropping and immediately turning into it’s native gaseous state.
