    It's new? It's takes up to 40,000 years for photons to emerge from the center of the sun due to photon scattering (absorbed by particles and re-emitted). It's cool they can control photon scattering on a tabletop but it's not new.

    Could quantum of light be the original source of life forming molecules ?
    Lukin said. " What we have done is create a special type of medium in which
    photons interact with each other so strongly that they begin to act as though
    they have mass, and they bind together to form molecules.
    This type of photonic bound state has been discussed theoretically for
    quite a while, but until now it hadn't been observed.
    I think they didn't create a new " special type of medium "
    The cloud of rubidium atoms just a few degrees above absolute zero
    can be only in superconductivity state . . . . .
    then fired single photons into the cloud of atoms .. . . . . .
    they are binding together to form molecules. . . .
    What kind of molecules can they be?
    In my opinion: only helium II . . . .
    ? ! ? !
    In my opinion:
    Light Quanta can be the original source of life forming molecules.
    The behavior of photons in vacuum is deferent than in superconductivity state.
