    I was hopeing that the end of broken windshields was at hand. But like the Bose Einstein condensate matter, it has little use and is short lived.

    I'm always disappointed when I read these headlines, and then it turns out that "Yes we turned aluminum transparent, but it was only an area 26nm wide and it lasted for 40 femptoseconds."

    Oooh, I wish I could go watch it happen...
