Bones lay in the hide
And teeth gibbered up
Of things that had died.

To let the water out;
But, strange to say, to their dismay,
The water in did spout.

With crinkly-crackly ice.

Figure 6: Cutaway view of 4 SICA cells. The outer diameter is 174 mm. The round holes are cooling water tubes; dimple tuning is provided (not shown).
Design of a 3 GHz Accelerator Structure for the CLIC Test Facility (CTF 3) Drive Beam
Most of the proposed artificial black holes [136] are based on a simple idea [181, 184]: Consider a moving medium with spatially varying flow speed, say water going down the drain of a bathtub.
Quantum Physics of Simple Optical Instruments
Frozen into vertical holes 2.4 km deep, drilled by hot water, the optical modules will lie between 1450 m and 2450 m below the surface.
The ICECUBE prototype string in AMANDA
The Hawking radiation emitted by the black hole can be used to heat up, say, a pan of water just as though the pan was kept inside a microwave oven.
Thermodynamical Aspects of Gravity: New insights
Dramatic improvement in the calculated spectra is obtained with a proper excitation theory, as shown in a recent paper, which focused on water and adopted Hedin’s GW approximation for the self-energy of the excited electron in presence of a static core hole.
Role of quantum nuclei and local fields in the x-ray absorption spectra of water and ice
Ghez and Genzel’s stars, and Miyoshi’s water masers, are buried well within the sphere of influence of the supermassive black holes in the Milky Way and in NGC 4258.
Supermassive Black Holes
The holes where AMANDA strings are buried, were produced with high pressure hot water (∼ 90◦C ).

The shell is not intended to withstand static pressure, but has several small holes which allow water to form a layer between the PMT and the shell.
Astrophysical Neutrino Telescopes
Holes are drilled with hot water, and strings with PMTs are frozen into the ice.
Astrophysical Neutrino Telescopes
AMANDA contains widely spaced photomultiplier tubes (PMTs; see Figure 5), connected together by strings and placed into water-filled holes drilled into the ice.
The History of Astrophysics in Antarctica
The holes range from several hundred metres to 3 km in depth and the water in them rapidly refreezes, trapping the PMTs within the ice.
The History of Astrophysics in Antarctica
AMANDA contains 677 widely spaced optical modules, connected together by strings and placed into water-filled holes that were drilled into the ice, before the water re-freezed.
The History of Astrophysics in Antarctica
The distance to the spiral galaxy NGC 4258 can be determined to very high precision and accuracy (∼ 3%) through geometrical methods based on VLBI observations of water masers located in the accretion disk of its central supermassive black hole (Herrnstein et al. 1999; Humphreys et al. 2005).

During re-freezing it increases since the hole freezes from the top, developing a con fined water volume.
Sensor development and calibration for acoustic neutrino detection in ice
Maser distances are inferred by comparing the rotation velocity and proper motion (angular velocity) of water masers in Keplerian motion around supermassive black holes in spiral galaxies.
