That is uber cool. We're just scratching the surface of an incredibly complex and exciting micro universe. Opening so many possibilities. That should silence all the detractors about financing costs of those huge projects and infrastructures such as CERN and others. The pay back and ROI in future I'm certain will be ten fold.
