433: Tractor beams don't work on water. Unless you got power.
69gnarkill69: So...a wave is beam?
Fark like a Barsoomian: As yet no mathematical theory can explain these experiments, Dr Punzmann said.This is the part that surprises me. Having once been a boy playing in a bathtub, I'm pretty sure you can make waves do anything if you throw the water around the right way. Do an interference pattern the right way and you can make any shape in 2 + time dimensions. You'd think this would be easy to describe."It's one of the great unresolved problems, yet anyone in the bathtub can reproduce it. We were very surprised no one had described it before."In other words this.
