    I thought this might be of interest. I hope I haven't missed this being discussed earlier.

    Researchers Record the Entire Life Span of a Photon

    Doesn't each interaction with a gas molecule cause a different photon to be created?

    Good find. I had read that they got the photon box working, but nothing more than that, really. I believe Einstein suggested this sort of device?
