Plutonium-244 could’ve come from neutron-star mergers, so knowing its abundance could reveal the rate at which such mergers happen.
As a science writer, I don’t like the inverted pyramid but prefer the pyramid: starting with a slowly building trickle of information at the top with the best stuff coming at the bottom.
The BEC was Einstein’s last major prediction and it took a revolution in quantum optics to be realised.
