Has String Theory Predicted Its First Experimental Result?

Symmetry Magazine is a joint publication of SLAC and Fermilab and has just released as article entitled: A first: String theory predicts an experimental result. Since 2005 there has been a known phenomea where quark-gluon plasma starts acting like a superfluid at extremely high energies. This has baffeled physicits.

It turns out string theory predicts this should happen. Hurray for string theory. (This doesn't prove the theory, but is interesting enough to blog about.)
