Caption: A stream of liquid nitrogen splashing onto the floor. Nitrogen is liquid at temperatures below 77.4 Kelvin (-198 Celsius). The vapour seen streaming down is composed of water droplets condensed from the air by the extremely low temperature. Nitrogen is the largest constituent of Earth's atmosphere, and is relatively inert under normal conditions. It is extracted from the air by fractional distillation. In the liquid state it is used as a refrigerant in cryogenics, and in low-temperature research. The blue and red tint to the vapour is a result of coloured lighting used by the photographer.
