Good Experiment, but Bad Reporting

    In spirit with the Good Speech, but Bad Reporting, here's another report of a rather important experiment but rather loose reporting. While one can excuse the earlier reporting because it was done by a non-professional for a college newspaper, this one is probably inexcusable. While the errors here are minor, they are still astoundingly inaccurate and only serve to perpetuate the inaccuracy.

    See if you can spot them....

    [Hint: what exactly does a "Synchrotron Center" do? Hint 2: how exactly does one exert pressure on such a material?]

    Zz.

    OK, we've been waiting for over a year already. So when are you going to give us the answers?
