 they managed to steer the particle towards a desired state.


So basically they are able to control the state of matter which the particle is in? If so then perhaps the ability to steer the particle towards a desired state will allow even more access to data relating to the fusion process where the process would be controllable and containable.

That could enable us to build impulse engines, couldn't it?
