  1. A team of MIT researchers claim they can experimentally demonstrate the effects of a long-theoretical, third state of magnetism using materials known as quantum spin liquids. The magnetic field produced by QSL closely mimics that of a true liquid in...

    Oooooooo exciting!!! Could this be the next step for mankind? The practical applications are STAGGERING!!! Is there a source paper on this!?

    most likely, usually breakthroughs like this must be documented

    There are now hundreds of states of matter, thanks to Quantum Physicists. It is Quantum Entanglement that will, in and of itself, be the next huge breakthrough with computers and communication, Not neccessarily the state of matter we use it in. What it is they are doing is trying to find a way to use 'entanglement' in a way to provide communication that ignores the speed limit of relativity and uses the one real peice of evidence for the multiverse theory (the two slit experiment, et alia) to calculate massively complex problems almost instantly. Love this stuff!

    There will always be set backs though
