Caption: Computer illustration of a counterflow superfluid state. In this type of superfluid, the motion of one type of atom (red) is exactly matched by an atom of the other type (green) moving in the opposite direction. This counterflow allows the atoms to maintain their crystalline structure. In a superfluid the particles flow without friction and without losing any energy. Such properties only occur at ultracold temperatures close to 0 Kelvin.
