    The article does not confirm the existence of a tetraneutron, but raises the possibility that there is such a thing. More experiments are needed.

    A resonant state seems to be the most plausible explanation for the observed events close to the threshold. A larger data sample would help. A direct detection of the neutrons would be even better.
