adrian asked the Naked Scientists:I'm Adrian, Romania and... well, I'm 28 and I'm reading Hector Servadac, by Jules Verne. And in this book a big piece from Earth is now flying through space. And there was a sea on this small planet. It was getting very cold and there was no wind to make the smallest waves on the sea. Jules Verne has told us that if there are no waves, the water can keep its liquid state, form much more under 0 Celsius. And Hector Servadac asked a little girl to throw a snowball in the still water. Suddenly all the sea transformed its surface into ice.Is it possible such a thing?.. Is the freezing point lowered if the water is still, without waves and it can turn quickly into ice if you make some waves?Regards,AdrianWhat do you think?
