We report the experimental realization of a space-time crystal with tunable periodicity in time and space in the magnon Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC), formed in a room-temperature Yttrium Iron Garnet (YIG) film by radio-frequency space-homogeneous magnetic field. The magnon BEC is prepared to have a well defined frequency and non-zero wavevector. We demonstrate how the crystalline "density" as well as the time and space textures of the resulting crystal may be tuned by varying the experimental…
