Just a weird idea, friction-less materials

  1. Sep 18, 2004 #1
    I just wondered, that our view of how the universe is is ussually WRONG.

    We've made zero-viscosity fluids, materials with no electrical resistance, and just all together "non-sense" things.

    Is anyone willing to suggest then that there are materials that do not provide friction(when measured agaisnt themselves, as in material X moving across another piece of material X)?

    And if anyone already has I would like to find out more about it.

    I suggest beginning your experiments with several tests on banana skins. They seem pretty slippy to me.
