New law reduces speed of light

Okay, what this lady does, is, she tunes the optical properties of a 0.1-mm lump of atoms called a Bose-Einstein condensate. I could use that as super science dialog in a comic book. It is so cool sounding it makes me vibrate with geek joy just to read about it.

What could this be used for? A gentle accelerator for a very light starship?
