Vial Number Thirty-Three
This morning I got the results in from the first experiments that I spoke about here. Most of them did nothing at all. Nothing in the blank controls, nothing in the experimental wells.
There were forty vials to examine, and there was nothing to report for quite a while. But vial number 33, that one appears to have worked. If the reading from it is accurate. I can hardly believe what I'm seeing,
But einmal ist keinmal, especially where wonderful results are concerned. I'm coming in over the weekend to set more controls and repeats to have them done on Monday, which is the next chance I'll have to get anything analyzed. If I can make it happen again, I've just had the most interesting and important result of my entire scientific career.
And I just can't tell you how surprised I am at that possibility.
