Well Sourced

Fascinating. A brief, but nevertheless informative look, at what seems to be an exciting new circumstance in scientific research. Not particularly much in the way of quotes and commentary, the Author's own words standing in on that score. However, very well-sourced, with the full study being referenced available for the intellectually curious to peruse. I scanned it lightly to good effect, but it demands a close read. This piece provides some of the important points and special mention to the included video which animates the process referred to for the reader and viewer. The rest, dear reader, is up to you. Five stars!
