Scientists have figure out how to change red blood cells to get them to carry other items. This could be the future of drug delivery.
Some amazing things have been observed when boiling nitrogen in a vacuum. The endothermic reaction (similar to how we cool when sweating) of the boiling removes so much heat the nitrogen turns into a solid. Then something amazing happens.
