In “Strange Metals,” the Flow of Electricity Is Equally Strange

In normal metals, electricity flows in the form of charged particles. Now scientists may have found the first direct evidence that in so-called “strange metals” electricity may flow as a mysterious fluid instead. In a paper published in Science, researchers suggest this electronic fluid could possess extraordinarily low viscosity, potentially…
