Silica aerogel is a highly porous glass consisting of a tenuous network of SiO2 strands interconnected at random sites. When a 3He-4He mixture is placed inside the aerogel, the coexistence region is found to be detached from the superfluid transition line, giving rise to a new miscible superfluid mixture at high 3He concentration and low temperatures.
