A team of researchers has succeeded in finding a way to stop light in its tracks for a full minute.

New Scientist said:

To break the minute barrier, George Heinze and colleagues at the University of Darmstadt, Germany, fired a control laser at an opaque crystal, sending its atoms into a quantum superposition of two states.

What does it tell us and how can we use it?

Don't quote me on this, but at the infamous Area 51, they [apparently] already tried and succeeded in building a lightsaber like device but found no use for it. But is it true? I dunno!

The question: obvious to everyone

The answer: apparently beyond you. What we can use this for is beyond the dreams of the majority of the masses. What if I said it could give us warp travel, or unlimited energy in 50 years' time? Would you start educating yourself so you could contribute to the works so we could have those things sooner? If the answer is 'no way, I just want to enjoy the results for free', then why bother asking the question? Plain curiosity, which, once answered, is satisfied, the interest subsided, the will to contribute, if ever existed, lost completely, the whole matter settled in your ever-want-to-be-busy mind, which simply says: "next"? Or what?

Well, I'd find a use or two for it

Interesting to be sure, but it takes a lot of energy to capture the light (LASERS, magnetic fields). Unless they find a very exotic use for the technology, the cost may outweigh the benefit, at least presently.

Sorry to burst whatever condescending bubble you're in, but you are way out-of-line.

There was NOTHING wrong with his(the L) comment, but a whole lot with your's.

So they trapped light inside an opaque crystal? How is this different then turning a light on in a room with no windows and saying "I trapped light in a room".

I mean, how can you read the inside of an opaque crystal? How can you "see" past the outside to know there is still light in there? Wouldn't light leave just as fast as you turning off the control laser? I mean obviously you can't get more light in once the control is off..

Looks like they are't really stopping it, just slowing it to the point of it taking a minute to leave the crystal. That is pretty sweet.

Slo-mo for real.

Soon, I can turn the light off and beat it to bed.

The old quantum superposition trick eh. Why didn't I think of that?
