What can be considered one of the longest running, single experiments finally has some closure after 69 years. The exiting moment that brought it to a close? A drop of “pitch-tar” finally fell — and someone saw it.

Wow, just wow, I can hardly contain my excitement.

Now back to watching grass grow.
