Physicists Design New Type of Pasta

Davide Michieletto and Matthew Turner are researchers at the University of Warwick in the UK. They're scholars in the field of polymer rings, which are strands that become easily tied together. Michieletto and Turner used the shape of these ring polymers to design a new type of pasta.

They call it anelloni, which is related to the Italian word for "ring." When cooked, anelloni clump together. It becomes enormously difficult to eat a single noodle, just as it is difficult to separate individual ring-shaped polymers.
