A well-designed electromagnetic field could, in principle, contain a plasma to a size of about 3 feet (maybe by sending the plasma in a highly elliptical path to create roughly the shape of a cylinder)." Is a Real Lightsaber Possible? Science Offers a New Hope https://www.space.com/31361-building-a-real-lightsaber.html "What technology could possibly yield the lightsaber? With that desire, came the first attempts to reverse-engineer the device. Reverse engineering, in this context, is thinking about how to do it…not actually building one. However, this research about clumping photons made the rounds a while ago." Scientists create never-before-seen form of matter https://phys.org/news/2013-09-scientists-never-before-seen.html "Harvard and MIT scientists are challenging the conventional wisdom about light, and they didn't need to go to a galaxy far, far away to do it." ____________________ How close are we to colonizing the moon, mapping the human brain and curing cancer?
