n her article, What Happens When Newton’s Third Law is Broken; Lisa Zyga describes a break through in the physics of nonreciprocal interactions of micro particles. One of the impressive products of this research is that one can observe a mixture of two liquids, which are described to be in “detailed equilibrium”, whose respective micro-particles retain the temperature of their original liquid; copied from a paper published in Physical Review X, Alexei Ivlev, et al. Another example of nonreciprocal interactions of micro particles is in an experiment where researchers levitated charged micro particles above an electrode in a plasma chamber. In this study, the violation of Newton’s third law comes from the idea that two different kinds of charged
