Borromean Rings Mean Good News for Quantum Physics Geeks

Abstract:
This story is a bit science-y, but if you stick with me, you'll get a tale of Afghan Buddhism, lithium atoms and a dream 40 years deferred.

Ready? It all begins with this guy named Vitaly Efimov, a physicist, who had proposed an advanced idea in 1970, his reasoning based on a mathematical proof, according to MSNBC.

His theory was the answer to a special case of the "three-body" problem, which is the question of how to estimate the manner in which three objects will operate together based on certain variables.
