Light stopped for a full minute

So the New Scientist magazine reports that scientists at the Saint Andrews University in the UK have managed to stop light for a full minute. For comparison, in this period the light would have travelled 18 million kilometres - or one seventh of the distance which separates us to the Sun.

I mentioned the Sun just to put up this awesome infography...
Imagine the possibilities of light and power saving that this technology will have, when properly reined in! Amazing, huh?
