Indeed, there are very few molecules that are smaller or lighter. The size of the water molecule, however, belies the complexity of its actions and its unique capabilities and anomalous properties seem to fit ideally into the requirements for life as can no other molecule. A number of explanations of the complex behavior of liquid water have been pu
