How Far Can You Stretch Glass?

How Far Can You Stretch Glass? 

      Glass, like jolly ranchers, is an amorphous solid and is neither a solid nor a liquid. Sugar and glass in a solid state transitions to a liquid state at certain temperatures. In this experiment, the students heated up sugar and stretched the fibers as far as they could. The thin sugar fibers solidified in the room temperature air and then transitioned back to a liquid when the girls ate it.
