Experiment is cute, but unnecessary. X-ray diffraction can instantly distinguish between glasses and crystals. Then again, it’s more expensive than a funnel.

The RTE.ie link doesn’t go to the video.

Hurray for confirmatory SCIENCE!

Yay for Trinity. And the RTE link has the video on the page - just need to click on it.

Pretty weird to imagine a drip that lands with a ‘clink’…
