Should have been posted under rumors and unconfirmed... it is NOT science.
...No, it's not imaginary, and it really physically exists. I don't understand where you got that from. BECs are physical objects, and I've been to labs where they create them. The apparatus takes up most of the volume of an 8 foot by 16 foot optical table, with components stacked four or five feet high. All to control a mere handful of atoms, very precisely.
It most certainly is physical, repeatable, and a very real thing. The point I was making is that these materials are not in any way even remotely comparable to everyday objects.
Edit: Oh, right. You. I remember you from the last thread. Please take your conspiracy theories elsewhere.
