Default Create your own multiverse in a cobalt & kerosene solution

http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/1...ses-in-the-lab

"While this is rather extraordinary, the experimental setup is actually
quite simple though definitely rather unconventional. The multiverse
is created inside a solution of cobalt in kerosene. This fluid isnt
usually considered a metamaterial, but lead researcher Igor Smolyaninov
and co found that by applying a magnetic field, the ferromagnetic
nanoparticles of cobalt line up in neat columns. When light passes
through these columns, it behaves as if its in a Minkowski universe."

This claim deserves a bit more explanation. It appears to be maybe three
levels of abstraction from making any actual sense.

Hoping somebody can explain it to me, these metamaterials make
absolutely no sense to me.

Yousuf Khan set the following eddies spiralling through the space-time
continuum:

Um - er - scratch head - sorry, doesn't light behave as if it's in a
Minkowski universe anyway? Somebody needs to explain it to me also.
