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.
That’s right, the experiment at Trinity College Dublin was set up in 1944 to show the high viscosity of pitch/bituman/asphalt (the substance goes by many names), according to the college’s website.
Wow, just wow, I can hardly contain my excitement.
Now back to watching grass grow.
