Superfluid He-3 is an ideal system for testing ideas in other areas of physics. The superfluid at low temperatures is almost 100% condensate and thus described by a single set of simple equations. In this paper we discuss the application of the superfluid to understanding turbulence since turbulence in the superfluid takes the very simple form of a tangle of identical quantized vortices. Various observations and implications are discussed.
