Why to study superfluid 3He?

I am interested in superfluid 3He because it is one of a small number of systems that satisfy all the following conditions.

I believe that superfluid 3He is a paradigm that is useful for other branches of physics, especially for unconventional superconductivity.

Note that this is my personal view, and Grigory Volovik has a somewhat different emphasis in his research.
