Bose-Einstein Condensate

In watching a recent program on TV entitled “Absolute Zero” the most unusual thing they talked about is the Bose-Einstein Condensate which can cool matter to such a state that it can actually slow or stop a beam of light. I always thought light traveled at a constant speed of 180,000 miles per second or 300,000,000 meters per second.
