    Could you be less clear? :wink:

    Seriously, you'll have to give more details about what you are looking for.

    Yes! It was described (and shown) in a recent Physics Today, I believe in connection with the cosmic background radiation measurement, I remember the proposal being like, a single paragraph. Hilarious!

    Then someone has very bad Google-fu. First hit of "physics today research proposal" is https://www.aip.org/history-programs/news/physics-today-archives-perfect-proposal-january-2016, which links to the actual article: http://physicstoday.scitation.org/doi/full/10.1063/PT.3.3053
