Quantum Superfluidity

New Scientist is carrying this summary of a recent development in the study of "superfluids". Previously this exotic form of matter was only thought possible when using bosons with integer spins. However, a pair of Austrian scientists have managed to create a superfluid using fermions, which have half-integer spins.

What I'm proud of is that I actually have some idea what they're talking about. Not much of an idea, but better than clueless. Woot!
