It turns out that the fastest known thing in the universe, light, can in fact be stopped. A German team of scientists have successfully stopped light from traveling for a whole minute. The record-breaking event could be a major breakthrough in the field of quantum memory storage.

What's the relationship between light, time and space and does this freeze of one mean that time travel is possible?

I'm still totally fascinated on how light can trap light.
I studied lasers as a special project in high school electronics and have a great respect for them.
