Who knew there was so much left to discover about plain old H2O? According to Physorg.com, two scientists at Graz University of Technology in Austria came across a strange and phenomenal discovery when they exposed two vats of water to an electric field. Apparently, the water climbed out of the two adjacent beakers to hover across the receptacles and form a water bridge! Insane. In any case, you can read more on the phenomenon and the research here.
