liquid and fluid are terms often used synonymously, but fluid has the broader signification. All liquids are fluids, but many fluids, as air and the gases, are not liquids.

1. Flowing freely like water; fluid; not solid. Yes, though he go upon the plane and liquid water which will receive no step. (Tyndale)

2. (Science: physics) being in such a state that the component parts move among themselves, but do not tend to separate from each other as the particles of gases and vapors do; neither solid nor aeriform; as, liquid mercury, in distinction from mercury solidified or in a state of vapor.

3. Flowing or sounding smoothly or without abrupt transitions or harsh tones. Liquid melody.

4. Pronounced without any jar or harshness; smooth; as, l and r are liquid letters.

Re: 2.5 M glycine crystallized

... on the countertop overnight might be enough. If not, a 37C water bath might work. Autoclaving is very likely to do the job -- be sure to use the liquid cycle. Solvent collisions can shake the molecules off the crystals, the question is how energetic the collisions should be.

Re: Would an asteroid simply just pass through Jupiter

... the hydrogen part. I guess you could think of it liike water. When it is in its gas form there might be very little resistance so still som' as a liquid it offers more though an object more dense will sink right through it but in a frozen form you can walk on itand this is under normal pressure.

Would an asteroid simply just pass through Jupiter

... we think of them! It's atmosphere is mostly hydrogen, but there is such pressure exerted on it that as you descend towards the core it will form a liquid, and eventually even a metallic substance! The Galileo spacecraft dropped a probe into the atmosphere and it burned up after about 150 miles ...
