To the dismay of "Star Wars" fans everywhere, physicists have long cried foul about the science of building real-life lightsabers. According to conventional physics, photons don't behave like regular particles of matter. They are massless particles, and can't interact with one another. It's therefore impossible to build anything out of light with a solid structure, such as a lightsaber.

But a breakthrough new discovery from researchers at the Harvard-MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms could change everything, according to phys.org (link provided below). They have discovered how to make individual photons interact and bind together into molecular structures. Not only does this represent a whole new state of matter, but these light molecules can potentially be shaped to form solid structures — in other words, lightsabers!

Things we didn't think we'd learn today:

- Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) once was a member of NSYNC.
- Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg) looked weirdly like Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer).
- Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) looks sweet with a mullet.

However, we are now glad that we learned these things.

The recent The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Trailer gave us an amazing first look at Zelda's new design. While the reaction has been mostly positive, there are some that aren't the biggest fans yet.

We're huge fans of her new look here, and are especially loving the artwork that it's inspiring.
