Bose-Einstein Condensate (BCE), a state of matter which is formed by cooling

a gas of extremely low density, about one hundred thousandth the density of
normal air, to super low temperatures. They can slow light down to the residential
speed limit, flow without friction. They are effectively super atoms, groups of
atoms that behave as one.
