Physicists from Trinity College Dublin's School of Physics and the CRANN Institute, Trinity College, have discovered a new form of light, which will impact our understanding of the fundamental nature of light.
Commenting on their work, Assistant Professor Paul Eastham said: "We're interested in finding out how we can change the way light behaves, and how that could be useful. What I think is so exciting about this result is that even this fundamental property of light, that physicists have always thought was fixed, can be changed."

Cardinal ingresses of the Sun have a special place in mundane astrology. Of these the Capricorn ingress is considered by many astrologers to be the “master chart” of the year. Shown here is the current Capricorn ingress at Dublin. Notice the complex configuration of a Grand Trine interlocked with a slightly wide T-square. The Grand Trine is anchored to the Ascendant via the TNP Poseidon. The TNP Kronos is about “rules or laws” , Poseidon is connected to “light” (whether spiritual or physical)  while the Uranus-Pluto square is about “transformation / change or the collapse of old ideas”. Ray Grasse in his essay, The Uranus/Pluto Square: Breakdown or Breakthrough  explains that in its positive manifestation this square is about breakthroughs in science among other areas.
So what we have as potential in this complex configuration is the possibility of the collapse of old laws/ideas about the nature of light. Now progressing the ingress chart to May 17, the date of the news, aligns the complex configuration once again with the horizon axis, informing us that this was one date when such news could come through!
