I like how the light to matter one (and probably others, too lazy to read them all) defies the "matter cannot be created" thing, and the experiment hasn't even been done yet, so no conclusion, but the "This Week In Science" peeps act like they have done it.

But matter can be created from light, is that not the whole basis of E = MC^2?
Matter can not be created from NOTHING. Light is something, energy.

Yeah, okay. But that aside, they haven't even done an experiment yet, and these posts act as if they are making plans to mass produce or something.

Somebody doesn't know a certain famous equation.

Hint: It has to do with a link between matter and energy.

E=MC^2

Energy = Mass*Speed of Light^2

Energy, when divided by the speed of light squared, will become matter.
Matter, when multiplied by the speed of light squared, will become energy.

I'm pretty sure that the 'Matter cannot be created or destroyed' law isn't true anymore, cause you know, nuclear reactors destroy atoms and what not.

Both of those laws have been changed. It is now something like this: The Conservation of Energy-Matter. You can convert matter to energy and back again between both, but can't just create from nothing or cause it to be nothing.

If you manage to fit a literal ******** of energy in a ring and convert it to stable and solid matter, such as iron, in an instant, while being able to specify what it needs to be through commands by brain implant, then yes. If you can't do all three of those things, then no.

In star trek the transporters are actually matter energy converters. Just because it's not possible now, doesn't mean it won't in the future, or very soon seeing the pace of scientific and technological growth.

Well technically you're correct. Whoever wrote that should not have used the word "created," because that's impossible. However, energy (such as that from light) can be transformed into matter. You're just getting caught up in semantics in a situation where any reasonably intelligent human being would understand what OP meant.

If you want to get technical about it, you could say created from energy, because you are switching from one to another, but the most accurate word would be converted.

I know I get red thumbs everytime, but I gotta rant about this again.

I love science but this is just really ****** propagande.
The hypothesis of photons traveling is due to a paper an unknown professor has written where he plays with the idea that it might be possible. They just posted it as a huge news, people haven't even read it and disproved/aproved it yet. It has no more credibility than me saying cows can fly.

Secondly the stars eating earth-like planets. The title suggest it means stars that eat earth like planets. You know the star is larger so when its gravity pulls a planet in the planet gets destroyed(I know this is huge ground breaking news). But what the article actually says is that they have figured out that by viewing the light from the star they can see what atoms the star consists of(This has been known for years). So they can see if the star could have absorbed an earth like planet in the past.

Didn't bother reading the article about pinpointing when the universe began cooling, but we've known for a long time so I'm guessing it means they just managed to meassure it more accuratly.

Sorry for the long rant just had to get it off my chest.

You're right, this isn't science. Science is hard work, requiring creative and logical thought as well as intesive labour.
Some people look at the fruits of science, say "That's interesting. I'm so into science", but unless they actually do this work, they are not into science. Liking a building does make me an architect. Admiring a painting does not making me an artist. it is good to do these things, but until you create something, you are not a creator. You are just s member of the audience.

In defense of the page, it is a news site, so titles they post (like all news sites) are often blowing things out of proportion to get more views and reads, so I'm sure they're aware of the actual meaning behind the information they've found, just chose to say it in a way to get views.

I may be a bit wrong here , but let me at least attempt to explain.   
   
Technically what you would call energy is particles moving at high speed , for example electricity is basicly electrons moving from one point to another and at certain point giving away their charge (which is the energy transfer from the grid to the device) .   
   
Light is photons moving at extremely high speed (as you probably know ,~300 000 000 m/s in vacuum ) with the exception that the said photons don't act simply as normal particles , but they also act (namely , spread) like waves instead of a straight line (a lazer is just a very small ray , it still behaves like a wave and disperses as the distance increases).   
   
What we would call matter would be the said particles to be turned into atoms, molecules and etc. that compose objects that are stationary (at least form an eye's point of view) which are basicly electron(s) spinning around a proton(s) (which seperately considered would be called energy).   
   
How exacly that happens is something I don't know and should be read at the source that OP didn't provide for some reason.

Just gonna add on a few things. The essence is there but photons aren't like electrons, protons and neutrons since they are actually massless. We consider them as 'packets' of energy.

It's been theorised for a while (1930s?) that an electron-positron pair could be collided so that they would annihilate eachother and produce a pair of photons. The picture is refering to a new study by a UK team which theorises that if this is true then theoretically you could reverse it and collide two photons to get an electron and positron.

A positron is the antimatter version of an electron and has a positive charge.

E=MC^2 states that all matter is composed of energy, so in theory you can convert one to another: IE nuclear fusion/fision. However, it appears that we have successfuly created subatomic particles, through a process I dont even begin to understand, from photons.
