      Plasma is what happens when gasses have a lot of charged ions. These ions have more or fewer electrons than typical gasses and act differently! They’re present in lightning and also in plasma screen TVs.

      There is also plasma in the body! This is a clear, straw coloured liquid that is left behind if you remove the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and other cellular components! It contains enzymes and salts and proteins!
