Light


This is one of the most exciting thing I have heard. The ability to stop, store, and restart light. How this will change our existing computing platforms and our ability to create complex interconnected networks remains to be seen.

The main challenge will not be developing new discoveries like this, but rather for humanity to hang on long enough to enjoy the results of science at this level. There is so much fear in the world that is rapidly overcoming the wonder that we should find instead.

P.S.

Sadly, it looks like the linked article disappeared.  They have most months online, but not the month with this article.  Maybe it will come back.
