Scientists are taking serious science riddles to their breakfast tables! They are turning to boxes of their cereals to understand the hidden phenomenon of avalanches and earthquakes. GRAINS- seemingly simple particles that offer a whole new world of physics, can provide solutions to the fundamental physics of particle segregation. Their study demonstrates how major insight across scales and disciplines can be gained from careful study of grains and the structures they form. It extends to all sorts of granular materials, from riverbeds and soils to industrial and pharmaceutical substances. Read further to learn how in the stream of falling sand grains, scientists may represent one aspect of the Fifth State of Matter...
