      To me it sounds way cool 🙂

      I guess Jack might have a great answer for this so I would leave to him 😉

      Here is a cool video about why plasma is awesome

      You can do loads of stuff with it … make a plasma TV, make a plasma speaker, decontaminate food, make a fusion reactor!

      The Sun is also a big ball of plasma… in fact most matter in the universe is a plasma! 🙂

      Plasma is just so unbelievably hot that even atoms can’t exist – so it is a totally different state of matter.

      I’m going to have a look at Jack’s URL link………
