The wikipedia entry on strange matter didn't tell me all I wanted to know, so I'll have to ask here: Is strange matter a fluid like 'neutronium' matter is? i.e. given advanced enough technology, could a cube or other non-spherical shape of strange matter be created? Or would it form a sphere because it's a fluid and its own gravity would force it to this shape? The wiki said that under some theories strange matter would be stable without gravitational pressure holding it together. Why, may I ask, does 'neutronium' need gravity to stay as 'neutronium' after it has collapsed from atomic form? The point of all this is I'm trying to find a material that could be the foundation material of an Orbital without needing a fictional material and 'force fields'.
