Model could shatter a mystery of glass

A glass is a curious material in between liquid and solid states of matter, but eventually glass always yields to its solid proclivity by settling into the ordered patterns of a crystal. Or so it was thought. A computational model has been designed for creating a "perfect glass" that never crystallizes — even at absolute zero. The model is a new way of thinking about glass and details the extremely unusual properties of a perfect glass.
