X-ray laser boils water into strange plasma state hotter than Earth's core

Waiting for water to boil is a minor inconvenience that we've all experienced, but maybe we're just using the wrong tools. Instead of a teapot, next time try the world's most powerful x-ray laser, which has now been used to boil water to 100,000° C (180,000° F) in 75 millionths of a billionth of a second – turning it into a new, plasma-like state of matter in the process...
