    I did a little research on the discovery, since this week was the first time I've heard about it, thanks to the Facebook page, I Fucking Love Science; it's been out for a while.

    I'm sure Star Wars fanboys are wetting them selves over this.

    This isn't exactly ground breaking stuff. I mean...they had to use specialized shit to do it...radioactive crap, vacuum chambers and screwing with the temperature!? *shakes head* Nanophotonics has come a *LOT* further than that in recent years. These days they can speed up and slow down the speed of light using everyday commercial level crap at Radio Shack and all at room temperatures.

    ...of course considering how much money DARPA has been DUMPING into it that shouldn't be too surprising. It's the reason they're now developing things like 5-D optical memory and uber cutting edge optical processing.

    Just two things: Gamma-gamma physics and interference patterns
