    How PLASMA is the state of matter’s BOSS?!
    Yes, Plasma is the first state of matter in the universe.
    Wait what? Is it true?
    Most people only know about the other three states of matter: SOLID, LIQUID, and GAS. But they often forget the existence of the fourth one.

    So what is PLASMA?

    Ok! Let’s take a trip down the memory lane when your physics teacher talked about this state of matter, or we bet you fell asleep, didn’t you?!

    Everyone knows that the atmosphere is GAS, ocean is LIQUID, and the ground we are standing on is SOLID. These are the three states of matter that ever exist. And the difference among these forms is the level of energy existing in them.

    Besides, PLASMA is also the fourth state of matter on Earth. How come?
    In a nutshell, you have ice cube as solid. If we heat it up – the ice cube will melt and dissolve into liquid.
    Continue to heat it up, the liquid will slowly evaporate, transforming into gas.
    So what if we continue to provide heat into this gas?
    When the temperature reaches several thousand, this gas will be ionized. The vast majority of the molecule or atom are left with only nucleus since the electrons have separated and moved independently. This ionized gas is a mixture of electrons, neutral molecules, positively and negatively charged ions which move chaotically. And there you have PLASMA.

    Plasma is the first state of matter in the universe because 99.9% of all visible matter in the universe exists in the state of plasma.
    The sun is a giant plasma; stars are also luminous sphere of plasma.
    The lightning strikes during rain, or the magical phenomenon, aurora, are also Plasma.
    Only on Earth, or some dark planets in the galaxy, can you find substances that exist in 3 states of Solid, Liquid & Gas - which accounts for only 0.1%. Therefore, Plasma is his most powerful “man” in the universe.
    Plasma’s application in the daily life is very diverse such as plasma lights, plasma screens, or plasma cutters used in mechanical factories. Especially, a 14 billion USD NETR arc reactor in France can produce plasma with up to 150 million degrees Celsius.

    Talking about arc reactor, we have to mention Tony Stark’s aka Iron Man mini type arc reactor on his chest. This small “reactor”, which is only a few pound, can produce huge source of energy. This energy converts directly into electricity helping Iron Man fly up in the air or blast power to save the world. Well, if you believe in that kind of superhero stuff!

    Mr. Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, did not really fool you with his science fiction. Remember the colorful Lightsaber? Yes, it is plasma. Due to the control of the magnetic field located in the hilt, the arc light has a fixed shape.

    Now you know what is PLASMA.
    Yes, it is the fourth physical state on earth, but it is the first state - the big BOSS state!

    My point is Plasma is an underrated matter that people should give it more credit

    For what?
    How does this advance things?
    What applications does it have?

    I don't know. People appreciate these:

    And neon lights. And sunshine. And the stars at night. And the aurora borealis. And ...

    I think it is pretty highly rated.

    This is a science forum, most people here are aware of it...
