Near absolute zero, molecules may start to exhibit exotic states of matter

Experimental physicists have successfully cooled molecules in a gas of sodium potassium to a temperature of 500 nanokelvins - just a hair above absolute zero. They found that the ultracold molecules were relatively long-lived and stable, resisting reactive collisions with other molecules. The molecules also exhibited very strong dipole moments.
