    A bit of an exaggeration to say that this drop of water can move uphill. It`s simply being carried by vapor over small ridges no larger than itself. I don`t see the same method being applied to a river going up a 45 degree gradient. Still very cool, nonetheless.

    Not.:-P

    Thought of moving water in this manner, BirkirHe? Certainly not, and I gave credit where credit was due. I`m only saying it`s an overstatement to say we made water go uphill.

    i thought it was cheating a bit, though still coolish, cause it was just moving over a flat surface, like if u walk down a slightly rocky road. but hey, only step one, imagine the possibilities.
    *imagines using a river to attck towns up the top of a hill*
    only joking...

    They can use this system to climb actual inclines of 12 degrees. so, assuming it is used for cooling computer chips, i guess you will have problems should the computer be tipped.

    wow its sad that something scientific is hit with so much flak
    i guess all you guys (who didnt like this) dont have an appreciation for science or the fact that water can now do something against the laws of gravity. I find this fascinating but that just makes me a nerd doesnt it?

    "I`m only saying it`s an overstatement to say we made water go uphill."

    They _are_ making it go uphill, though. It`s going down a small decline and then up a larger step, for a net gain in height. The article says it can climb up 12 degree slopes.

    I am skeptical of its use as a coolant, though. The only way for it to pump the coolant up is if the coolant is resting on a layer of vaporized coolant gas, and heat transfer through a gas is much, much slower than through direct liquid contact (the gas layer will insulate the coolant itself from the thing they are trying to cool).

    we give more than billions of dollars to scientist for cancer, aids, and all sorts of diseases and all they do is come up ways to make water go uphill?

    You...can`t photoshop an article or report.

    The guy was being sarcastic and talking about the picture (the only thing you CAN photoshop)

    Some people need to realize if it`s not a picture that meant to seem real and someone says `photoshopped` they`re probably being sarcastic and there`s no reason to cuss them out and call them stupid. That`s actually kind of hypocritical.

    People on this site tend to use "photoshop" as a generic term for faking pictures _and_ video. He might have been referring to the short video clip in the article.

    That was very neat. It probably took alot of work to do and figure out. But you`ve got to wonder, "Who cares?"

    Ryan14 Said `Makes you think that scientists are always trying their hardest to solve world problems`. This is what scientist do - investigate how the world works bit by bit.. When you know how it works you can then think of ways to use that effect, like better cooling for computers. Applications always come after the science bit...and scientists don`t do technology, they do science! :-)

    Woah kewl! I wonder if they will be able to make larger amounts of water do that too. I think people take science for granted too much. If it wasn`t for science and technology, we would`nt be posting useless comments right now!
