Neutron Star creates creepy fluid

According to The Daily Galaxy, the dense core of a neutron star has been found to create a weird type of fluid called a superfluid.

"If conditions are right, these neutrons ought to be able to pair up to form a superfluid – a substance with quantum properties that mean it flows with zero friction. Superfluids formed in laboratories can do spooky  things such as creep up the walls of a cup, or remain still even while their container is made to spin." - Daily Galaxy

I've heard of superfluids before and quite frankly they freak me out. They do stuff that makes you question if the universe really exists or if the Native American spirituality were right and everything is alive.
