I haven't seen any posts on this, though I just skimmed for recently updated threads.

The idea isn't new, it's been speculated about ever since some RHIC experiments and some see further proof of this idea in the latest LHC results ... while some don't.

Slow news day so the media thought they would pick this to see what they could get out of it.

Let's see if this makes it as the fifth state of matter. ;)

It appears that this is not making it as the fifth state.
