    Sorry - replying to this very late! Yes, it was peer reviewed, and for the discovery to be announced it had to be peer tested and meet very stringent confirmation criteria. There had been previous thoughts that it may have been found that hadn't stood up to peer review, and therefore weren't announced.

    So they're sure they have it. Now they need to find out what its properties are. They have a standard model for what it should be, and they are testing to see if it conforms to that or has altogether different properties.

    You probably already know this by now, but just saw I'd never replied!

    Thanks in advance!

    I just finished reading 'Don't Sleep, There Are Snakes' which is about a missionary's time spent with an isolated Amazonian tribe and how they challenged (and changed) his perceptions of faith, linguistics, and happiness. Terrific stuff.
    Northerly - have you read 'Sex at Dawn'?

    not overly 'science-y' -- but kinda is.

    Great look at sexual behaviour based on evolution and drawing comparison to other primates along the way.
