i cant remember where i read this but it was an artical about stoping light or atleast slowing it down i cant find anyother information on it and i was wondering if any of you knew where i could find some
I recall a Topic in PF-2.0 that was entitled: "HELP! How Did They Get Light To Stand Still?!", or words to that effect. I'll dig out my disk (which sounds really painfull, but I'll be OK) and see if that Topic contained a link.
Are select one of the links below:

Which is exactly what they did. They essentially froze the light's wave-front into a steady state of some atom condensate if I recall correctly.
And tails, Relativity says all observes in any reference frame will regard the speed of light in vacuum to be the same. Slowing down light by altering the medium in which it progresses is not contradicting relativity in any way, shape or form.
