Smitty825 writes "After slowingdown light to slow speeds, scientists at Harvard University have been able to stop light for a very brief period of time without destroying its energy. The article explains how it is different from this previous light-stopping science story - this will hopefully help the development of quantum computers and ways to communicate over long distances without being eavesdropped on."
"The algorithm to do that is extremely nasty. You might want to mug
someone with it."
