Supercooling Experiment

Supercooling Experiment. Water changes from liquid to ice on contact. My brain hurts from trying to figure out how this works. Any theories?

A bottle of pure, distilled water will do that. Just sayin' it`s possible.

Let`s gripe about the repost anyway. XP

It could be a supersaturated liquid, or it could be nucleation.
But by the way the crystals are forming, by the -frost- on the bottle, and the fact that it's melting from the ambient temperature in the air, I`d have to say it`s nucleation.
Mythbusters did an episode which covered a type of nucleation, except it was super heated water in a microwave. As soon it got disturbed it turned instantly into steam.

Wow. Some of these posts/people are so moronic and stupid, I fear for the future of the earth.
