Here is a comment I received from a reader today.
I thought that perhaps some readers might be interested in this article in Gizmodo: “Scientists Model Rare Ball Lightning With Help From Tangled ‘Skyrmion’ Quasiparticle”, https://gizmodo.com/scientists
Aalto University QCD Labs in Finland (http://physics.aalto.fi/en/gr
Below is video of from Aalto University with this explanation:
“A side view of the experimental creation of a 3D skyrmion. The imaging method produces three regions where the spins point up (right), horizontally (center), and down (left). In the actual experiment, theris only a single condensate which contains all these different regions. Brighter color denotes a higher particle density.”
