 “It would have been crazy to predict superconductivity based on what we knew,” said Antonio Castro Neto, a physicist at the National University of Singapore. “But science moves forward not when we understand something, it’s when something totally unexpected happens in experiment.”

It’s exceptionally difficult to twist two sheets of graphene exactly 1.1 degrees out of alignment. But this “magic angle” leads to extraordinary effects. “I couldn’t believe it,” said one scientist. “I mean I actually found it beyond belief.”

I continue to post what appear to be irrelevant events because they are just that; until you realize that they are also "all that". Their reality in fact, dazzles the imagination, and I feel moved to point out the glaring difference between amazing things people do, next to the crap that passes now for politics as usual in our fair Capital.

You see, there are no 'nations', 'borders', parties.


These are what I have dubbed 'ephemeral realms', mutable situations we can alter at the stroke of a pen. The folks in this article are dealing with immutable facts, like our only address: EARTH. They are cracking problems we really have, as opposed to those we have brought down upon ourselves with the 'Seven Deadlies', first among them, Greed. While many of us are stealing each other's back yards, these guys are figuring out how to get us the hell out of here, when the celestial sh*t hits the fan, as it were.

My money is on them.
