After 50 years of theories and thwarted attempts, scientists have finally proved the existence of a new form of matter. The never-before-detected condensate is called excitonium, a name first coined in the 1960s by Harvard theoretical physicist Bert Halperin. Halperin is now 76.

“It’s as close to ‘proved’ as you’re ever going to get in science,”

Abbamonte, a physics professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, told Newsweek.

What is this newly discovered matter? How does it differ from other forms of matter? Will it have any impact on current physic theories?
