New findings on Fluid Turbulence

Bryan Crump stirs a cup of tea with Dr. Ashton Bradley from Otago University. He’s part of a research collaboration with the University of Queensland which has just published a report in the magazine Science with some breakthrough findings in fluid turbulence which may have implications for our understanding of quark-gluon plasmas, electrons in solids, and the persistence of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, or could help create more efficient transportation.

Universal features of fluid turbulence persist at very different scales: Great Red Spot on Jupiter (Nasa image) comped with clusters of quantum vortices in a superfluid Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC lab, University of Queensland).
