Glass is defined as a hard, brittle substance, typically transparent or translucent, made by fusing sand with soda and lime and cooling rapidly. It is used to make windows, drinking containers and other articles. The startling see through property of glass owes it’s existence to another amazing fact, although glass is hard, it is not truly a solid. Some scientists think of glass as a sort of frozen liquid. Rather than having the orderly arrangement of most hard matter, the microscopic structure of glass resembles a liquid, stuck in time. The interiors of true solids have boundaries that scatter light, causing it to bounce off. Glass’s liquid-like lack of these boundaries lets the light through.

Significantly the term glass is often defined in a broader sense, encompassing every solid that possesses a non-chrystalline (amorphous) structure at the atomic scale and that exhibits a glass transition when heated towards the liquid state.
