Scientists have made an astonishing discovery, one that could lead to the development of actual tractor beams (i.e. – light that attracts solid objects and people).
You see, in nature, light particles repel matter. But, for the first time ever, these scientists have discovered a way to reverse this process.
It’s not able to affect large objects yet, however.
As University of St. Andrews researcher, Tomas Cizmar, says, “It only occurs for very small particles, in the range of between half a micrometer up to, say, five micrometers for a visible light.”
