When heavy ions collide at high energies at Brookhaven's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, the components of the nuclei melt to form a hot soup of their constituent particles. A new model that describes the patterns of particles flowing out from this "quark-gluon plasma" suggests that the resistance to flow is close to the ideal limit used to define a "perfect" fluid.
