The just-announced experimental discovery of a tetraneutron by an international group led by researchers from Germany's Technical University of Darmstadt opens doors for new research and could lead to a better understanding of how the universe is put together. This new and exotic state of matter could also have properties that are useful in existing or emerging technologies.

That’s a silly question…

You obviously get a tetrapositron.

You get an ionized martini, extra dry, very dirty.
