Michael McGinnis  asked the Naked Scientists:
   What happens to a superfluid under unequal gas pressures?
Suppose unequal pressure were applied to the apertures of a U shaped pipe half full of superfluid. Would it do something weird or would it just act like a regular liquid?

What do you think?

How would you get the superfluid to stay in the U-shaped tube in the first place?
