    Very cool. I used to do research in plant physiology, where the experiments might range up to 6 months from setup to completion. This forced an enormous attention to detail to avoid ruining an experiment that had made it 90% of the way. And planning good experiments was so critical. Forgot the control? Oh well, just have to wait 6 more months.

    A >10-year experiment is a huge accomplishment.
