I found this story on Lycos (http://news.lycos.com/news/story.asp?section=Science&storyId=818256). And Physicsweb (http://www.physicsweb.org/article/news/8/1/14)

I remember there was a discussion about the different states of matter, but I couldn't find it. Anyway, it is called 'Fermionic Condensate' which I found a blast, still trying to work out where Foam and Sand or Grains fit in to the Matter types.

The fifth state is the Bose-Einstein condensate !

For the more scientifically literate and wannabe's (me included) here is a Physicsweb site about Quantum Gasses (http://www.physicsweb.org/article/world/15/4/7) :)
