    Article is not interetsting at all. There is only one important part:
    "three photons stick together"

    Now, I want good scientific article about it.
    Especially about quantum behavior of this "new" particle in comparison to regular photon, electron...

    And if similar technique can't be used to harness leptons passively and spit electrons...

    Thanks!
    Albeit it's not anything fundamentally new. It's news because the research paper got published in Science the other day.

    1) Strongly-interacting photons

    2) The research paper from OP

    3) For non-experts

    Keep an eye out for PBS Space Time to cover this. This is exactly the kind of news they jump on to separate the real physics from the crap.

    If you are not a subscriber you should check it out, one the few things on YT actually worth the time it takes to watch.

    Second that, and to just add you should check whole PBS series because they have separate channels for math,physics,astrophysics,natural science,biology ... they really have bunch of great channels that deal with variety of science stuff and they do it in "light" way so 99.9% of people can understand and comprehend .
