Physicists twist water into knots with 3D printer
Nature: More than a century after the idea was first floated, physicists have finally figured out how to tie water in knots in the laboratory. Creating a knot in a fluid bears little resemblance to tying a knot in a shoelace. The entire three-dimensional (3D) volume of a fluid within a confined region, such as a vortex, must be twisted. Physicists Dustin Kleckner and William Irvine have now created a knotted vortex using a miniature version of an aeroplane wing built with a 3D printer. The researchers submerged their tiny wings in a tank of water and gave it a sudden acceleration to create a knotted structure. This research was conducted at the Irvine Lab at University of Chicago.

The Last Words of Famous Suicide Notes:
- “I feel certain that I’m going mad again. I feel we can’t go thru another of those terrible times. And I shan’t recover this time. I begin to hear voices.” - Virginia Woolf.
“The act of taking my own life is not something I am doing without a lot of thought. I don’t believe that people should take their own lives without deep and thoughtful reflection over a considerable period of time. I do believe strongly, however, that the right to do so is one of the most fundamental rights that anyone in a free society should have. For me much of the world makes no sense, but my feelings about what I am doing ring loud and clear to an inner ear and a place where there is no self, only calm. Love always, Wendy.” - Wendy O. Williams.
- “The future is just old age and illness and pain…. I must have peace and this is the only way.” - James Whale.
- “To Harald, may God forgive you and forgive me too but I prefer to take my life away and our baby’s before I bring him with shame or killing him, Lupe.” - Lupe Velez.
“When I am dead, and over me bright April
Shakes out her rain drenched hair,
Tho you should lean above me broken hearted,
I shall not care.
For I shall have peace.
As leafey trees are peaceful
When rain bends down the bough.
And I shall be more silent and cold hearted
Than you are now.” - Sarah Teasdale.
- “They tried to get me - I got them first!” - Vachel Lindsay.
